Item Description...
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 Nine of the essays are previously unpublished; the other four are thoroughly revised.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.

Publishers Description
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 Writing with theological sensitivity and a deft literary touch, he presents thirteen essays--nine previously unpublished and four thoroughly revised--on key passages, on structural features of the Gospel, and on patristic and modern interpretation.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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Splendid in content and sound exegesis!  Dec 29, 2007
Those who are familiar with Allison's previous works (i.e. whether on the historical Jesus, his 3 volume commentary on the Gospel of Matthew, or his book on NT eschatology,etc) will also enjoy his "Studies in Matthew." This book will get you acquainted with various schools of interpretation on the selected passages and revolutionize your own interpretation and understanding of various Matthean texts (i.e. 1:1, 1:18-25; 2:2, 9-10; 5:8; 5:21-25; 27:45; 28:9, etc) which the author treated in great detail. A gold to be treasured by every student of New Testament.
The Overflow from a Classic  Jan 11, 2007
The three volume work on Matthew that this author along with Davies did in the International Critical Commentary is oftentimes the final court of appeal for just about any exegetical issue that comes up in the Gospel. Evangelicals may have to bite their lip at times, but the experience is worth it to savor all that those volumes say. Now, how would you like to get "the rest of the story" that Dale Allison couldn't include, even in those three volumes? Well, here it is - the overflow of years of thought on this book. Allison learned that the Fathers had something worthwhile to say about this Gospel, and he tells you what that is. His discussion of the "star" of Bethlehem made me want to re-write a chapter in one of my own books! If you are writing on Matthew or preaching through it, you must get this volume. It will stimulate you to fresh thoughts as well as take you down old paths that have been neglected.
