(p.83) 6 Matthew
The Resurrection of the Messiah

Christopher Bryan (Contributor Webpage)

This chapter examines Matthew's narrative about the death and resurrection of Jesus. Matthew's account of Jesus' death and burial and the opening part of his account of Jesus' resurrection follow Mark overall, although the Passion Narrative contains additional material about signs accompanying Jesus' death (27:45-66). But then, instead of ending where Mark ends, with the empty tomb, Matthew adds an appearance to the women (27:9-11a) and an entire subplot about the priests and the guards at the tomb (27:62-65, 28:11-15). This subplot provides, in narrative and theological terms, a kind of counterpoint to the main story. The chapter considers Matthew's narrative under the four headings of the apostolic formula, into which structure, as does Mark, it comfortably fits.
