Studies in Matthew and Early Christianity
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 This volume presents a collection of twenty-six essays, including one previously unpublished, and encompasses some of his most prominent contributions to scholarship. 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project, he published a number of preliminary studies that are also included in this volume, together with a previously unpublished paper investigating `Justin on Martyrdom and Suicide´.
