Dale Allison, one of the preeminent New Testament scholars of our day, gathers here thirteen essays on significant features of Matthew. These essays display the historical, literary, and theological acumen that make Allison a leading figure in gospel studies. Nine of the essays are previously unpublished; the other four are thoroughly revised. Part 1 draws upon the exegetical tradition, from church fathers through medieval interpreters to nineteenth-century commentators, to highlightt interpretive possibilities missed by their more recent heirs. Allison does not merely assert but demonstrates in studies of several of the Gospel's more puzzling episodes that "the exegetical past," while requiring critical sifting, nevertheless offers genuine insights that we neglect to our loss. Part 2 brings Allison's own literary sensitivities to bear to illuminate the structure and meaning of the First Gospel as a whole and several of its key narrative elements. Careful attention to Matthew's verbal signals and textual architecture brings his theological themes into sharper focus. A must for Matthean scholars, this volume shows the way for all who would draw upon exegetical tradition as well as current historical knowledge and critical methodology to enrich contemporary understanding of New Testament texts.
The author of a leading major critical commentary on Matthew here offers further insights into the Gospel and the history of its interpretation. Writing with theological sensitivity and a deft literary touch, he presents thirteen essays--nine previously unpublished and four thoroughly revised--on key passages, on structural features of the Gospel, and on patristic and modern interpretation. Exegetes, preachers, students, and other lovers of biblical narrative will read "Studies in Matthew" with profit and delight.
