Book Description: The sheer volume of scholarship on Matthew has grown even larger recently because of renewed interest in the Jewish background of Jesus and the New Testament. Donald Senior, distinguished biblical scholar, writer, and teacher, surveys a list of nearly one hundred new articles and books published in North America and internationally within the last decade. In a clear and readable fashion, Senior investigates and then explains the major issues that dominate the study of Matthew today: the background of the evangelist and his community, the structure and the purpose of the gospel, the relationship of the gospel to Judaism, and the gospel's portrayal of Jesus, discipleship, and church. What Are They Saying About Matthew? is a welcome resource for those who wish to benefit from this most comprehensive and reliable exploration of modern biblical scholarship.
