Matthean scholars will want to engage the various voices in this volume. Several offer fresh extrinsic approaches, including concrete analogies with other ancient Jewish sources. Others engage earlier debates on exegetical cruxes, address intertextuality with the Hebrew Bible, and especially advance cases relevant to current discussions on Matthew’s relationship with contemporary Judaism.
