This book maps the relationship between Matthew's Gospel and the Didache. No consensus regarding the nature of this relationship has yet been achieved; nor has serious consideration been given to the possibility that Matthew depended directly on the Didache. If it may be shown that this was in fact the case, then this infamously enigmatic text may finally be used to answer a series of tantalising questions: What is the pattern of the Synoptic relationships? How did the earliest Jewish Christians incorporate Gentiles? What was the shape of eucharistic worship in the first century? This is volume 254 in the Journal for the Study of the New Testament Supplement Series.

The enduring value of G. s study is that he has supplied scholars with a pioneering and much-needed investigation. G. effectively calls into question all the present literature calculated to demonstrate the dependence on the Didache on Matthew s Gospel. For this reason alone, it will have to be taken into account. The Catholic Biblical Quarterly, 67, 2005
'Garrow's work deserves attention, not only because he has offered an innovative analysis of the composition of the Didache but also because he has argued his own thesis of Matthew's use of Didache with careful attention to detail...fine analytic work.' John S. Kloppenborg, Trinity College, Biblica, vol 86 2005--Sanford Lakoff
'Like Garrow's earlier study on Revelations, the thesis is nothing if not bold. It is worked out with meticulous care...and presented in as accessible format as such an esoteric argument allows, including a full printing of the text of the Didache in both Greek...and English...The whole book is a demanding but stimulating read, and to see the traditional methods of NT source-crticism applied to a non-NT text provokes salutary reflections.' Dick France, Evangelical Quarterly--Sanford Lakoff
