    1. Primarily a reference book designed for exegesis or preaching, Carter moves through Matthew in pericopes exploring the Matthean text from the perspective of historical and sociopolitical influences, suggesting alternative understandings of some of the Jesus stories relating them directly to a deeper reflection of their power in the economic, political and social context of the day, adding a richer significance to interpreting the text for modern hearers of the gospel.
