D.A. Carson on Christological Ambiguities in Matthew

The following article is now avialable in PDF:

D.A. Carson, “Christological Ambiguities in the Gospel of Matthew,” Harold Rowden, ed., Christ our Lord. Studies in Christology Presented to Donald Guthrie. Leicester: IVP, 1982. Hbk. ISBN: 0877849552. pp.97-114.

Professor Carson’s work always impresses me. It stands in sharp contrast to those who seem to think the writers of the New Testament incompetent bunglers with scissors and paste. Reading this article I was impressed once more by the great insight and artistry Matthew used in preparing his Gospel. I heartily recommend it.
