The Baylor-Mohr Siebeck Studies in Early Christianity series undertook this translation of a monumental synthetic study of ecclesiology in the Gospel of Matthew by notable German scholar Matthias Konradt. The study begins by recognising that centuries of biblical interpretation have begotten anti-semitic or anti-Judaic sentiments among Christian communities; most notably, the text of Matthew has been used and abused because of its popular connotation as the most and least "Jewish" of the Gospels. Due to the complex history of Matthew's reception concerning Jewish-Christian relations, scholars often search the text for clues as to the nascent activity of the "parting of the ways" between Judaism and Christianity.
