Matthew 12 - IVP New Testament Commentaries

Increasing Conflicts

Matthew's plot, like that of the other Gospels, focuses on conflict. In the context of promises of persecution for disciples engaging in mission (Mt 10), Matthew reveals the hostility that had already begun (9:3, 11, 14, 34) but was now growing.
