Matthew's Gospel is the most significant Jewish-Christian document of the New Testament. Ulrich Luz both outlines and elucidates the story told in the Gospel, emphasizing its focal points: the Sermon on the Mount, the miracles, the renunciation of possessions, and particularly the theology of judgment by works, an idea that represents both a challenge, in its quest for a church set apart from non-Christians by deeds alone, and a burden, through its traumatic origin in the breach between Matthew's community and the Israelite majority.

'... a model of issue-facing. It is full of judicious observations on the intractable question of the relation of Matthew's Jesus to the Jesus of history, the apparent tensions between Matthew's stress on moral performance and Paul's gospel of grace, on 'Matthew and church history' and on topics of particular relevance to today - in effect, whether Matthew's story was, from our point of view, worth telling.'
