In this fresh commentary, the fourth of eighteen volumes in the Paideia series, a leading New Testament scholar examines cultural context and theological meaning in Matthew. Paideia commentaries explore how New Testament texts form Christian readers by • Attending to the ancient narrative and rhetorical strategies the text employs • Showing how the text shapes theological convictions and moral habits • Commenting on the final, canonical form of each New Testament book • Focusing on the cultural, literary, and theological settings of the text • Making judicious use of maps, photos, and sidebars in a reader-friendly format

Talbert's prodigious knowledge of Greco-Roman culture and sources is overwhelming at times. Still, this volume provides key insights into world which produced the Gospel according to Matthew, and it's concise, clear prose makes it accessible.
