The Gospel of Matthew is pivotal in scholarly discussion on the hermeneutical use of the Old Testament in the New. In this publication Bitrus Sarma proposes that Matthew utilizes the Old Testament as a book of promise of God’s salvific plan and that Jesus is the fulfillment of that promise. For Matthew, God’s purpose to save fallen humanity is the grand narrative of the Bible. Using promise-fulfillment as the interpretative framework for mission theology, Sarma explores redemptive events and institutions, geography, prophetic ministry, and intertextual typology.
