'... an admirable and carefully crafted book ...' Journal of the New Testament Society of South Africa 'Olmstead's reading of these texts contained in Matthew's Gospel is compelling.' Expository Times 'Matthean scholars and students will appreciate the careful attention Olmstead has paid to the place of the leaders of the nation of Israel, the nation as a whole, and the Gentiles in Matthew's Gospel. The reading he offers of the three parables certainly keeps the entire Gospel in perspective.' Journal for the Study of the New Testament 'An important study for both Matthean scholars and for the study of parables in the Synoptics generally.' Religious Studies Review
