Matthew's gospel is clearly indebted to its Jewish heritage, and also most vehemently in conflict with its contemporary Jewish rivals, the Judaism reforming its identity and its boundaries after the devastation of the Judean war ( AD 66-70). That conflict gives this gospel a shrill edge in its harsh polemics against 'the scribes and the pharisees.' Leith Fisher wrestles with the issues in the text, pointing to the theological and pastoral maturity of this commentary. The commentary is not purely academic; it consistently relates the gospel to the everyday and the ordinary.
