From The Publisher:

Translated by Rosemary Selle

The work of one of the world’s foremost New Testament scholars, Ulrich Luz, this book gathers eighteen penetrating studies of Matthew’s Gospel, available here in English for the first time.

Luz’s groundbreaking work ranges widely over the critical issues of Matthean studies, including the narrative structure and sources of the Gospel and its presentation of such themes as christology, discipleship, miracles, and Israel. Several chapters also outline and demonstrate the hermeneutical methods underlying Luz’s acclaimed commentary on Matthew, for which this book can serve as a companion. Luz is particularly conscious of the Gospel’s reception history, a history of interpretation connecting us with the past that determines so many of our questions, categories, and values. Studies in Matthew thus constitutes a noteworthy contribution to biblical hermeneutics as well as to exegesis.
