‘“What was said through the prophet(s).” Matthew’s Use of the Old Testament’, in P.G. Bolt (ed.), Listen To Him; Reading and Preaching Emmanuel in Matthew (Oxford: Latimer Trust, 2015), 23–47.
The essays collected here originated as papers given at the Annual Moore College School of Theology for 2014.

The history of Israel contains both promise and pattern that point ahead to the coming of Jesus Christ as the Messiah who will ‘save his people from their sins’.Access Resource
