Matthew as Editor Markan Priority Recall: Matthew: Edited Mark to narrow spotlight on Jesus (Healing of  Jairus daughter) Edited Mark to prevent theologically awkward readings  of Mark (Baptism) Edited Mark to “correct” positions attributed to Jesus  (Laws on Unclean Foods, Divorce)

Introductions “The beginning of the good news of Jesus Christ, the  Son of God.”   Mark 1:1 “An account of the genealogy of Jesus the Messiah,  the son of David, the son of Abraham.” Matthew 1:1 What do the differences in Matthew’s opening  suggest to us about the narrative that is to follow?

Formula Quotations Another Editorial Technique Formula Quotations: This was done so that what had been spoken by the prophet X  might be fulfilled Most prominent means of editing Markan material. Supplements  Mark by supplying Scriptural foundation Directly quotes Biblical prophecy over 30 times in narrative, most  of which are not included in Mark. Example: Now when Jesus heard that John had been arrested he  withdrew to Galilee.  He left Nazareth and made his home in  Capernaum by the sea, in the territory of Zebulun and Naphtali, so  that what had been spoken through the prophet Isaiah might be  fulfilled: ‘Land of Zebulun, land of Naphtali, on the road by the sea,  across the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles—the people who sat in  darkness have seen a great light, and for those who sat in the  region and shadow of death light has dawned.”   From that time  on Jesus began to proclaim, “Repent, for the kingdom of  heaven has come near.”
