      Thought this new Baker Academic title by Dale Allison-recently arrived in
      our warehouse-would be if special interest to XTALKers, so am posting (with
      the kind permission of the list-owner). Of the thirteen studies included,
      nine are published here for the first time; the other four are sufficiently
      revised that in the preface Dale asks those who wish to cite them henceforth
      cite these versions rather than the originals. If you want a copy, the link
      below will let you order at a 20 percent discount.

      About the Book

      This set of studies by the author of the leading large critical commentary
      on Matthew focuses on history of interpretation and literary structure. Part
      1, The Exegetical Past, contains focused studies on the angel that led the
      Magi to Jesus, the statement that the pure in heart will "see God,"
      connections between the words on anger in the Sermon on the Mount and the
      story of Cain and Abel, various interpretations of the darkness at the time
      of Jesus' crucifixion, the significance of the gesture of the women who
      grasped the feet of the resurrected Jesus, and the usefulness of patristic
      exegesis of Matthew for current interpretation. Part 2, Literary and
      Historical Studies, the function of Matthew's alternation of narrative and
      discourse in establishing Jesus as a model for imitation, the meaning of the
      first two words of Matthew, the interpretation of the divorce sayings in
      Matthew in light of Joseph's scruples about marrying Mary, the structure and
      meaning of the Sermon on the Mount, five passages in which most commentators
      have overlooked subtle foreshadowings of the passion, tensions and alleged
      contradictions within the Gospel, and Matthew's responses to the problem of
      evil.
