Does Matthew's handling of sexuality issues shed light on its context

Loader, W. (2011) Does Matthew's handling of sexuality issues shed light on its context. In: Senior, D., (ed.) The Gospel of Matthew at the Crossroads or Early Christianity. Peeters, Leuven, Belgium, pp. 569-583.

Abstract

In this brief study I approach the question of the setting of Matthew's Gospel from the perspective of its attitudes towards sexuality or matters sexual, as part of a major project in which I am currently engaged, investigating Jewish and Christian literature to the end of the first century. Matthew has few pertinent references but more so than any other gospel and a number of these played a role in discussions of Matthew's setting.
