Synopsis

Known as a scribe, minor tax collector and public sinner, Matthew sought to create an identity for the fledgling Christian community as it struggled against persecution by the Romans and ostracism by the Jewish leadership. In her new book, wellknown author and master storyteller Megan McKenna shows how this identity is forged of forgiveness, reconciliation and atonement. What characterizes Matthews church is Jesus as the Mercy of God, as mercy shared. Matthew's community becomes the presence of the kingdom of heaven on earth the presence of God's mercy on earth. In this masterful commentary, McKenna shows that, as it did for that early Jewish community of Christians, Matthew's gospel offers balm and hope for the Church today.
