This book is an informed, focused, deep, and creative analysis of the topic of (im)politeness applied to Jesus in Matthew's Gospel, with in-depth conclusions and analysis about the Matthean Jesus' (im)politeness. This study utilizes innovative methodological approaches regarding the analysis and interpretation of the subject in Matthew's Gospel, finding similarities with the language and (im)polite engagements of other first-century Greco-Roman characters and the Matthean Jesus in similar contexts. The (Im)Polite Jesus would make an excellent addition for studies on Matthew's Gospel or courses focused on biblical studies, biblical literature, biblical hermeneutics, methodologies, and in discussions about exposing interpreters' cultural biases when addressing the topic of (im)politeness.
