Salvation in Continuity deals with big questions––soteriology, intertwined with Christology––of utmost significance for understanding Matthew in its first-century Jewish setting. It argues that Matthew’s understanding of salvation in continuity is to be seen as his response to the historical and theological questions of post 70 c.e. Judaism. The study employs a sequential treatment of the Gospel, which enables it to avoid the danger which characterizes many previous studies of limiting the discussion of salvation in Matthew to certain texts, where the theme of salvation is more direct and explicit.

In the last thirty years, books on the Trinity have abounded. There seems to be a fascination with this mysterious topic, especially among systematic theologians. This present book has no intention of adding to the plethora of treatises on the Trinity. The main question with which it is concerned is what is really scripturally tenable with regard to the Trinity and what is unwarranted theological construction or even speculation. What takes shape here is a story: how the doctrine of the Trinity developed over the subsequent centuries from the traces in Scripture to a centralized dogma at the heart of Christian teaching. We witness in this an evolution from proclamation to controversy to speculation. What are we to make of this doctrine? How do we articulate the biblical faith today?
