Step III: Immediate Context


The Sermon on the Mount becomes the first divergence of Mt from Mk (w/ the exception of the genealogy and birth narrative).
Who is this Matthew? Perhaps he was a reformed scribe or rabbi ... thus he was quite hard on Jewish Christians. Or was there a Matthean "school."
This passage is part of the "Sermon on the Mount" does Mt. present this material as exemplary of the way that Jesus used to teach?
