Matthew 18.15-20 in the light of the Dead Sea Scrolls by Peter Wallace Dunn

Matthew 18.15-20 in the light of the Dead Sea Scrolls (pdf), by Peter Wallace Dunn

A thesis submitted in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Christian Studies at Regent College, April, 1991, under the supervision of Dr. (now Prof.) Markus N. A. Bockmuehl.

Abstract

The Dead Sea Scrolls provide some remarkable parallel texts to Matthew 18.15-20. In a recent article, F. Garcia Martinez shows that previous studies of these parallels are inadequate because they assume that a dependent relationship exists between Matthew 18.15-17 (as a tradition unit) and 1QS 5.24-6.1. He suggests that further investigation of these parallels would be helpful in understanding Matthew 18.15-17, as a tradition unit and in its literary context. This study seeks to do the latter–to compare and contrast Matthew 18.15-20 (the full unit) in its literary context with parallels from the DSS, in order to come to a better understanding of the correction process in the Matthean community.
