HET UNIVERSALISME VAN DE BERGREDE IN HET VERHAAL VAN MATTHEÜS

Boris Paschke

Abstract


 Mt 5:13-16 is studied with regard to universalism and interpreted in the context of the Matthean narrative. In this passage, Jesus entrusts his disciples with a centrifugal ministry that addresses Jews and Gentiles alike and that is to be carried out immediately after the Sermon on the Mount (Mt 5-7). Mt 5:13-16 thus stands in tension to the established scholarly view that the disciples carry out a universal mission only after Jesus’s resurrection (cf. Mt 28:19). The universalism of Mt 5:13-16 rather suggests to divide the Matthean narrative into a universalistic beginning, a particularistic interim time (cf. Mt 10:5-6), and a universalistic open end.
