How did Matthew portray Jesus?

There are a number of ways that Jesus is portrayed by Matthew. Firstly Jesus is portrayed throughout the book as the one who fulfills the Old Testament prophecies about the messiah. Secondly, Jesus is portrayed as the King, and this theme is followed through in terms of the outline of the book as a whole. 1. Matthew 1:1 4:11 The Presentation of the King 2. Matthew 4:12 7:29 The Proclamation of the King 3. Matthew 8:1 11:1 The Power of the King 4. Matthew 11:2 16:12 The Progressive Rejection of the King 5. Matthew 16:13 20:28 The Preparation of the Disciples of the King 6. Matthew 20:29 27:66 The Presentation and Final Rejection of the King 7. Matthew 28:1 20 The Final Vindication of the King Source: Nelson’s Complete Book of Bible Maps and Charts: Thomas Nelson, Nashville, 1982. p. 309 Matthew has long been recognized for its Jewishness in that it refers to the prophecies known by the Jews and also to Jewish laws and religious customs. In this way, Matthew clearly points to Jesus’ divinity since only God could alter or change the laws that He had given to Israel. In the passages immediately following the Sermon on the Mount various demonstrations of Jesus’ power are made. The scribes present are shown in verse 3 to be thinking that Jesus was speaking blasphemously to forgive sin. In this connection it is worth noting that Jesus did not have to pray to God to forgive the man but He did it Himself. (MORE)

With regard to Matthew specifically, Jesus must have recognised qualities in him that were latent and needed someone who believed in Matthew to release them. In my own small way I have been in the same position; some pupils I used to teach when I was a head of science in a high school responded to belief in their latent talents rather than continual condemnation, despite their one time behaviour problems. Matthew, being a tax collector, would lead Jesus to others Zacchaeus, for one, and, as Jesus said, he came to make sinners repent and not for the ‘respectable’ people. We know that Matthew was unreservedly obedient to Jesus; so many would be followers of Jesus would not leave their riches behind to follow him, but with a simple ‘Follow me” from Jesus we are told that Matthew immediately got up, left everything (including his money, tax booth and belongings) and followed him never to return to that way of life. Matthew, as a tax collector was also trained (as were all tax collectors) by the Romans in an early form of shorthand. No wonder in Matthew’s Gospel (almost cerainly written by Matthew the tax collector) we have recorded most of the sayings of Jesus including the Sermon on the Mount. With his shorthand, it is very canada goose outlet orlando likely that Matthew wouild have taken down the teachings verbatim, so that we can now rely on a wod for word account in his gospel 2000 years later.
