Matthew uniquely highlights Jesus as "Emmanuel," but almost wholly overlooked are the deeper implications of this "presence" motif for Matthean christology. Kupp takes a multidisciplinary approach to the weaving of the Emmanuel Messiah into the story-telling, redaction and christology of the Gospel. Kupp employs the lenses of both narrative and historical criticism to produce the first monograph in English on the divine presence in Matthew. Matthew's Gospel is a story that compels, a text with a history and a christological treatise.
