Mary Coloe’s brief, contemporary Australian gospel reflections offer readers thoughtful introductions to the Sunday gospels of the liturgical year. Matthew is the focus of Year A. This small book completes her series on the three years of lectionary readings.

Mary writes her reflections mindful of the historical context of Matthew’s writing. She points out that Matthew was writing, after the destruction of the Temple, for a Jewish community split between the Pharisees who focused on Jewish Law (Torah) and the third generation of Jesus’ followers who believed that Jesus, God’s appointed one and Son, had an authority greater than Moses and the old Law. At the same time, this Christian community was opening out to non-Jews, the Gentiles.
