MCCUISTION, Paul R.; WARNER, Colin  y  VILJOEN, Francois P.. Fulfilment of righteousness: Historical and ontological perspective of Matthew 3:15. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2014, vol.48, n.1, pp.01-08. ISSN 2305-0853.

ABSTRACT This article maintained that the historicity of Jesus' baptism was intended to flesh out the righteousness of God that was well-documented in the Hebrew Scriptures. Furthermore, the historical event initiated the ontological emphasis on the relationship of baptism to righteousness. To support this proposal, this article focused on Matthew's fulfilment statement in Matthew 3:15. Looking specifically at this verse within its context, the article examines what Matthew may have intended for his community to grasp regarding the Christian tradition of righteousness. The article is divided into four sections that are intended to examine Matthew's intentions. Firstly, the immediate context is examined, showing the influences and setting for the fulfilment statement. The following section explores the fulfilment statement within this context. The third section uncovers some of the theological traditions in Paul and the church fathers. Finally, the baptismal statement of Matthew 3:15 will be tied directly to the relationship of the law and righteousness in Matthew's f)M5ov statement of Matthew 5:17.
