Roland Deines demonstrates the Matthean understanding of the new place and function of the Torah in the kingdom of the Messiah through a detailed exegesis of the crucial text Matthew 5:13–20 in the context of the whole gospel. It becomes clear that Matthew is not the advocate of a law-abiding community but a theologian with a genuine profile who is able to show that the new message of Jesus signifies a transformation and not a straight continuation or a nullification of the biblical writings regarded as »law and prophets".
