A renowned scholar of the Dead Sea Scrolls argues for reading the Gospel of Matthew as the product of a Jewish sect

What did it mean for members of a Jesus movement in the first century to promote their understanding of Jewish history and of the Jewish way of life? John Kampen explores the nature of sectarianism in Jewish society at the time of Matthew’s composition, arguing that the gospel was produced within an early Jewish sect and on the basis of a biography of Jesus provided the foundation for this sectarian development within Judaism toward the conclusion of the first century.
