Luzbrings special attention to the subsequent history of Christianappropriation of Matthew in homiletical and artistic interpretation,and addresses the terrible legacy of Christian anti-Judaism.This volume completes Luz's three-volume commentary on theGospel of Matthew in the Hermeneia series. A translation of theearlier German edition of Matthew 1-7 appeared in Fortress Press's Continental Commentary series. The text has been thoroughly revised and updated.
