Two things: First, there is an online resource for Matthean study I
found through following a link from Mark Goodacre's blog to
Bibliostudies.org. Normally I would simply include these in the Links
portion of the site and announce them, but they're only up until June 30.
The link to the main site is:
And the two articles that I will highlight as of Matthean interest:
Jesus and Moses: Rabbinic Backgrounds and Exegetical Concerns in
Matthew 5 as Crucial to the Theological Foundations of Christian Ethics
Alan F. Johnson in Morris Inch & Ronald Youngblood, eds., The Living
and Active Word of God. Essays in Honor of Samuel J. Schultz. Winona
Lake, IN: Eisenbrauns, 1983. Hbk. ISBN: 0931464110. pp.85-108.
Right Questions About Isaiah 7:14
J. Barton Payne in the same volume as above.
Second I would like to make a request. Over the next few weeks I'm
going to make a Herculean effort to revamp some parts of the site and
add some new content. Suggestions, links to Matthean or history of
interpretation of Matthew sites or papers, links to your personal
papers, or other suggestions more than welcome.
