This book contributes to current debates in Matthean studies centered around the influence of wisdom thinking in Christology. The primary purpose of the study is to examine key passages in their present context and in relation to Matthew's Gospel as a whole. Through greater attention to literary context, the book focuses both on Matthew's use of his sources and on the final Gospel he produced. The ways in which Matthew makes use of the wisdom tradition reveal his consummate theological and literary skill, showing how he works both creatively and purposefully with the materials at his disposal.
