The genesis of the Christian community is through the Jewish faith. The thesis of the Carpenter's Son is that the Gospel of Matthew was based on the Gospel of Mark, and was written in Antioch to record the life of Christ to Jewish followers at a time of uncertainty with the impending destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem. It is in Antioch is where followers of Jesus were first called "Christians."
The story challenges us to ponder the early life of the Christian community in a world shaped by Greek culture, and ruled by the Roman Empire. It reflects how these may have influenced the resulting work we know as Gospel of Matthew.
The Carpenter's Son is an analysis of the writing of the Gospel of Matthew presented in the context of a story.
