Review of the hardback: 'Gurtner has produced an extremely valuable study that clarifies many of the issues that revolve around this small but highly significant detail in the Matthean text.' The Expository Times
Review of the hardback: '...the work is a model example that others would do well to follow. The insights that are generated make a contribution to Matthaean studies and confirm the impression that Matthew's use of scriptural traditions serves eschatological as well as Christological ends.' Journal for the Study of the New Testament
