Abstract

53. APOCALYPTIC MOTIFS IN THE GOSPEL OF MATTHEW: CONTINUITY AND DISCONTINUITY Donald A. Hagner Both apocalyptic and the Gospel of Matthew are cur- rently subjects of renewed interest in the scholarly world,] and it therefore seems timely to take a fresh look at the presence and function of apocalyptic in Matthew.2 One of the newer emphases in the study of apocalyptic is its socio- logical basis, and thus in this paper we must make some initial, brief attempt to understand the life-setting of the community to which the Gospel is addressed. We shall then in turn look at the place apocalyptic holds in Matthew, at the innovative perspective of the evangelist as a representa- tive of the primitive Christian community, and then finally at the function of apocalyptic in Mt. Mt is by no means isolated in his apocalyptic perspec- tive ; it is shared by the other evangelists. In Mt, however, the apocalyptic perspective holds a much more prominent place than in any of the other Gospels. Most of the material we will focus upon is unique to this Gospel. And although we cannot here do detailed redactional analysis of Mt's use of Mk and Q, it
