The scope of this paper is somewhat obvious from its title. It will deal with the Third Book of Matthew. This is a title used to designate that which most commentators have set apart as the third major section of Matthew's Gospel, chapters 11 to 13:52. Since it may be necessary to lay a little groundwork, part of the second chapter will deal with the structure of Matthew, specifically that which outlines the Gospel on the basis of its five major sections.
