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.

Word & World
"These studies demonstrate the depth and profundity of a master exegete. . . Pastors [should] attend to this volume, especially when preaching on Matthew."
Graham Stanton
"Every teacher and student of Matthew's Gospel will want to read these lively essays by one of the most distinguished biblical scholars of our time. Ulrich Luz's multivolume commentary on Matthew is one of the finest exegetical achievements of the twentieth century. These essays distill much of the wisdom of that great commentary, but they also develop further some of its most stimulating insights. Luz's carefully nuanced and clearly expressed discussions of central Matthean themes and topics will be appreciated by a wide readership."
Dale C. Allison Jr.
"Ulrich Luz is a master exegete. He is historically very well informed, hermeneutically sophisticated, and theologically interesting. I have no doubt that these essays, together with Luz's commentary on Matthew, represent the future of Matthean studies."
Evangelical Quarterly
"This books shows very well both what Luz brings to his study of Matthew, and what he receives from this gospel for his own faith and service."
