Margaret Davies takes up the insights of reader-response criticism to explore how the conventions and strategies of the Gospel of Matthew draw the reader into the world that the text creates. There is a recognition also of the text’s significance as authoritative scripture for modern Christians and the bias that this gives to any interpretive strategy.
This is a reprint of the 1993 edition.
Margaret Davies was formerly Senior Lecturer in Biblical Studies, University of Sheffield.
