Having discussed the subject of a mission to Jews, it may be appropriate to discuss the related question of what Matthew understood as the place or present status of Israel in the plan and purpose of God, since Israel for the most part rejected Jesus as the Messiah. It is a subject of no little controversy, particularly since Matthew has been seen as contributing to the anti-Semitism that has manifested itself at different times and in various places through the centuries. ISRAEL No one can deny that Matthew's gospel contains some scathing indictments of the Jewish religious leaders.
Only hours earlier He had explained the significance of His death to the disciples with the words, "This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins" (26:28). By failing to believe Him, the religious leaders failed to obtain forgiveness. Faith then is that invisible disposition of the heart whose visible corollary or outward manifestation is righteousness of life. A good illustration of this interplay between heart and life is found in the way Matthew's gospel calls attention repeatedly to the importance of regard for others, of mercy and compassion, of forgiveness and restoration as a distinguishing mark of one who does God's will.
Two final passages regarding the role of the Spirit may be noted, before some concluding observations on this aspect of Matthew's theology are made. " And the personality of the Holy Spirit, in equality with God the Father and God the Son, is expressed in Jesus' command to baptize disciples "in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit" (28:19). Baptism is a visual testimony to a disciple's entrance into a relationship with the triune God. This is an appropriate place to consider Jesus' two affirmations about His presence with His disciples, since the Spirit seems to be the unmentioned agent of this presence.
