In this study, Brian Carrier analyzes the role that seismic language plays in Matthew's Gospel. Using a narrative critical approach, he argues that Matthew's seismic references cast Jesus's life, death, and resurrection as a partial fulfillment of Old Testament prophecies about the Day of the Lord.
In this study, Brian Carrier provides a comprehensive analysis of the role that seismic language plays within the Matthean Gospel narrative. After reconstructing what connotations seismic language likely carried in Matthew's cultural context, the author utilizes an historically informed author-oriented narrative criticism that is complemented with redaction criticism to analyze the relationships that Matthew's seismic references display with regards to each other and to the overall narrative. This analysis leads to the conclusion that Matthew's seismic references collectively indicate that the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus together represent the partial fulfillment of the Old Testament eschatological Day of the Lord.
