Mountain and house as primary metaphors in the Gospel of Matthew

The aim of this article is to show that mountain and house are signifi-cant theological spaces of interest. The temptation of Jesus will be interpreted within the context of the mountain-motif in Matthew. The wilderness, temple and mountain are places of eschatological expec-tations. For this reason it was suitable as places for the temptation and calling of the Son/Son of God. We will also describe house as a primary metaphor and as a space of interest with theological significance. We conclude that mountain and house as primary metaphors have a significant topological-theological meaning in the Gospel of Matthew.
