July 2009 – see HERE.

In the new ExT issue, there is an interesting article by David Sim on the history of the interpretation of Matthew’s Gospel.  Here is the abstract (the title is: THE RISE AND FALL OF THE GOSPEL OF MATTHEW):

The Gospel of Matthew, the most influential Gospel in the ancient Christian Church, has lost its primary position in the modern world. It has been replaced by John as the most popular Gospel, and it is challenged by Mark for second position. This study seeks to explain Matthew’s fall from grace by isolating a number of the Gospel’s features that are deemed to be either offensive or problematic by modern interpreters.

There are also some nice reviews, such as Paul Foster’s take on Eddie Adams’ new The Stars Will Fall From Heaven monograph; and Stephen Chester’s review of J.K. Riches’ commentary on Galatians.
