The identification of the disciples as the followers and male leaders in early Christianity continues to affect the norms and conventions of modern Christianity. This patriarchal view can be challenged by claiming the existence and importance of the other followers in the Gospel narratives. This dissertation offers an inclusive perspective of 'following ' in Matthew 's narrative. In Matthew, the basic idea of God 's basileia is subversive and relational, and as such, it is compatible with the feminist idea of power where neither hierarchy nor domination exists. In Matthew 's narrative, all who follow Jesus share equal citizenship in God 's basileia. Printed Pages: 208.
