Description: Over the course of his distinguished career, the late Graham Stanton, former Lady Margaret’s Professor of Divinity at the University of Cambridge, wrote extensively on New Testament and early Christian themes. This volume presents a collection of twenty-six essays, including one previously unpublished, and encompasses some of his most prominent contributions to scholarship. Stanton’s work as an interpreter of the Gospel of Matthew is well known, and thus Part I includes seven essays on Matthew. Part II (‘New Testament Studies’) collects twelve studies on various New Testament themes, ranging from the exegetical to the methodological and programmatic. Toward the end of his life, Stanton was engaged in writing a book on Justin Martyr in the context of early Christian and Jewish dialogue. Though he did not live to complete the project, he published a number of preliminary studies that are included in Part III, together with a previously unpublished paper investigating ‘Justin on Martyrdom and Suicide’.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Synoptic Gospels, Matthew, Early Christian Literature, Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches, History, Early Church Origins
