The book is about finding clues to link nature miracles and Cosmic Christology in Matthew's Gospel. A number of attempts had been made to uncover Matthew's Christology by exploring various Christological titles and typologies in Matthew's Gospel. The book however moves to a different path from these explorations, and give interest to the neglected nature miracles to develop and contribute Cosmic Christology in Matthew's Gospel. The significance of Cosmic Christology is now ready to be applied to other area such as nature theology.
The book finds valuable connection and possible link between nature miracles of Matthew's Gospel and Jewish Cosmology, particularly the period of the Second Temple Judaism. This contribution encourage new and more relevant research on Matthew's Cosmic Christology and theology of nature for contextual readings.
