|Author||Mohn, Kendra Allison,author.|
|Abstract||Masculinity studies has emerged in biblical studies as a promising methodological perspective, providing a different framework within which to engage issues of gender and power in the biblical text. However, more direct and thorough application of the methodology is needed to determine the potential of masculinity studies to contribute to wider conversations in biblical studies. This study engages issues of masculinity in the Gospel of Matthew within the Roman imperial context. Utilizing three criteria--dominating control over self and over others, wealth, and divine service--the figures of Joseph, King Herod, John the Baptist, Herod Antipas, Peter, and Judas are explored. The study highlights the ambiguity and ambivalence associated with masculinity in the Gospel of Matthew, including the complex negotiation of status among non-elite males, the emphasis on divine alignment, and the retention of dominating control as a hallmark of masculinity in this Gospel.|
