<b>Mountain and house as primary metaphors in the Gospel of Matthew</b> <br> The aim of this article is to show that mountain and house are significant theological spaces of interest. The temptation of Jesus will be interpreted within the context of the mountain-motif in Matthew. The wilderness, temple and mountain are places of eschatological expectations. For this reason it was suitable as places for the temptation and calling of the Son/Son of God. We will also describe house as a primary metaphor and as a space of interest with theological significance. We conclude that mountain and house as primary metaphors have a significant topological-theological meaning in the Gospel of Matthew.
