Fulfillment in Matthew as Eschatological Reversal

Listen to Dr. Brandon Crowe discuss Matthew’s use of the Old Testament with Camden Bucey and Jim Cassidy at Reformed Forum.

Matthew’s use of the Old Testament has perplexed interpreters for years. It is difficult to ascertain precisely how Jesus “fulfills” the prophets in several of Matthew’s references. Dr. Crowe argues that Jesus not only fulfills the Old Testament as the new Israel and consummate Davidic king, but according to Matthew’s formulae, he does so by reversing Israel’s pattern of covenant infidelity.
