This article focuses on the place and function of topology within the structure of Matthew. An overview of the different models on the structure of Matthew shows the dominance of the chiastic model. The author uses the topological-chiastic model to illustrate the significance of the landscape and topology in the Gospel of Matthew. The aim of the article is to emphasize the significance of house, land and topology in Matthew’s Gospel from a theological perspective. The conclusion is that there is a relationship between the chiastic structure of Matthew and the topological movement in the plot of Matthew.
