In this penetrating analysis of the figure of Wisdom in Matthew’s Gospel and of the tradition upon which it relies, M. Jack Suggs shows that Wisdom is a basic part of Matthew’s theology. He closely examines selected passages from the Gospel that exhibit Wisdom themes and demonstrates that Matthew’s identification of Wisdom and Christ deeply affects the Evangelist’s understanding of the Torah. The author declares that Matthew, motivated by his determination to keep Jesus at the center of the Christian proclamation, identified Christ and Wisdom, thus contributing to later speculation about Sophia.
