Abstract:The purpose of this dissertation is to assess the use of the OT in Matthew's birth narrative. The thesis is that Matthew quoted from the OT in his birth narrative in order to draw to his readers' minds stories from the OT. Matthew was not using the OT to prove that Jesus must have been a resident of Nazareth or that Hosea predicted that Jesus one day would come out of Egypt; instead Matthew was offering his readers an OT lens through which they could understand the story of Jesus. Part of the problem addressed by this study is that many of the quotations in Matthew's birth narrative fail as proof texts. If Matthew intended to use them to offer OT proof for the events surrounding Jesus' birth, this proof came at the cost of violating the OT context and the plain meaning of these passages. Matthew's audience, being Jewish and educated in the Scriptures, would have had at least some understanding of the narrative context out of which these quotations came. They would have been able to draw to mind the stories behind these quotations and then use the context of these OT passages to help them understand the significance of Jesus' birth and childhood. Each of the OT quotations in Matthew's birth narrative was assessed using an intertextual method. First, the context of the OT quotations was examined to determine the story implicit within the text of the OT. Second, other ancient sources were investigated to ascertain how the OT story would have been understood in Matthew's day. Third, a summary of the story behind the OT text was presented. Fourth, the context of the OT quotation in the Gospel of Matthew was studied, with attention given to three questions: Why did Matthew quote from this text, why did Matthew quote the text at this point in his story, and why did Matthew quote the text in a document written to this audience? Once the individual quotations were examined, an argument was made for two themes that tie together the five OT quotations in Matthew's birth narrative.
