This collection of essays from the 2005 Tyndale Fellowship conference covers topics pertinent to the entire first Gospel, including Matthew's sources, the role of Jerusalem, the problem of anti-Semitism, Matthew's portrayal of salvation history, and more. Reflections by seasoned veterans -- Donald Hagner, R. T. France, David Wenham, and others -- are featured, complemented by the contributions of a number of scholars lesser known to the English-speaking world. Together these essays provide a valuable entry in the field by an international team of evangelical scholars addressing critical questions in Matthean studies.Contributors: Armin D. Baum
