In Matthew 1–14: A Handbook on the Greek Text Wesley Olmstead provides a foundational analysis of the Greek text of Matthew 1–14. The analysis is distinguished by the detailed yet comprehensive attention paid to the text. Olmstead’s analysis is a convenient pedagogical and reference tool that explains the form and syntax of the biblical text, offers guidance for deciding between competing semantic analyses, engages important text-critical debates, and addresses questions relating to the Greek text that are frequently overlooked or ignored by standard commentaries. Beyond serving as a succinct and accessible analytic key, Matthew 1–14 also reflects the most up-to-date advances in scholarship on Greek grammar and linguistics. This handbook proves itself an indispensable tool for anyone committed to a deep reading of the biblical text.
