Product Description

The Gospel of Matthew contains both overt and subtle connections to the Old Testament, capitalizing on the scriptural literacy of the work’s original, first-century Jewish audience. These complex and multifaceted connections are not always recognized by today’s readers, meaning significant ideas can be easily missed or misappropriated. David B. Capes elucidates these extensive backgrounds, echoes, quotations, ways of thinking, and patterns of living, showing how God’s plan—introduced in the Hebrew Scriptures—is revealed through the very person, work, life, and ministry of Jesus.

Endorsements

“Capes is able to trace out many of the threads from Israel’s story in each section, revealing an intricate and beautiful cloth revealing the face of the Messiah.”

Amy Peeler, Associate Professor of New Testament, Wheaton College


Matthew Through Old Testament Eyes is a gem for all Bible readers. I wish I had this book when I was a local church pastor who preached regularly. David Capes not only provides keen insights into Matthew’s message, but also offers guidance for all interpreters—preachers, teachers, scholars, and other students of Scripture—to enhance their own exegetical work.”

Dennis R. Edwards, Seminary Dean, North Park Theological Seminary


“David Capes shows how the Old Testament is the substructure and scaffolding for the Gospel of Matthew. Indeed, from the birth narratives, to the Sermon on the Mount, all the way through to the Great Commission, Capes carefully and convincingly shows how the entire story is suffused with the fulfilment of Scripture. An informative read and a necessary tool for teachers and preachers of Matthew’s Gospel.”

Michael F. Bird, Academic Dean, Ridley College, Melbourne, Australia

Editorial Reviews

“David Capes applies his extensive knowledge of the Old Testament and Second Temple Judaism to reveal the world of Jesus in Matthew’s gospel. Matthew Through Old Testament Eyes adds layers of historical and theological context to familiar verses and sheds light on puzzling passages. Capes’s long-standing friendships with rabbis is evident in his careful descriptions of Jesus’s interlocutors. Everyone preaching or teaching on Matthew should have this commentary ready to hand.” -- Distinguished Professor of New Testament and Director, Houston Theological Seminary
