In particular, this new introduction reflects the growing scholarly attention to the reception history of biblical texts, increasingly viewed as a vital aspect of interpretation rather than an optional extra.
If you have the luxury of time to set aside for a serious course of study , there is no better place to start than Ian Boxhall’s recently published Discovering Matthew. This is a masterly overview of current scholarship, reception history and textual analysis. The question of authorship and the historical and social context are all expertly laid out in an economical format.
