Matthew 18:15—20: A diachronic and synchronic investigation with special reference to church discipline
It is well known that gospel material consists of traditional matter as well as the evangelists' own input.

Matthew 18:15—20 is subjected to such an approach. As part of the diachrony these verses are studied by means of the historical critical paradigm. Special attention is paid to source and redaction criticism. Under the synchronic aspect this pericope is investigated structurally, historically and theologically. Discourse and narrative analyses are used for the structural component.
