His Blood be Upon Us: Completion and Condemnation in Matthew’s Gospel

Available to Pre-order

The book explores the antisemitic potential of Matthew’s Gospel in the Christian New Testament. It begins with a detailed discussion of the occasion of the text, before discussing key questions (Matthew’s fulfilment theology, and the use of polemic in the text). Three crucial texts are examined in detail. The book discusses the reverberations of the “blood cry,” arguing the deicide-focused interpretation of Matthew 27:25 is foundational to subsequent blood libels, which are also discussed. The final chapters explore how to preach from Matthew’s Gospel with Jewish people in mind, including offering sample sermons to stimulate the reader’s thinking about how they might teach from a controversial Matthean text in a way that denies the possibility of perpetuating Christian antisemitism.  

It will be of interest to students and scholars in religion and faith, Christianity, and interfaith studies. 

Author: The Reverend Dr Tom Wilson is Director of the St Philip's Centre in Leicester, UK, a Christian interfaith centre.
