The New Isaac: Tradition and Intertextuality in the Gospel of Matthew began life as Dr. Huizenga’s dissertation at Duke University. Employing Umberto Eco’s theory of the Model Reader as a theoretical basis to ground the phenomenon of Matthean intertextuality, this work contends that when read rightly as a coherent narrative in its first-century setting, with proper attention to both biblical texts and extrabiblical traditions about Isaac, the Gospel of Matthew evinces a significant Isaac typology in service of presenting Jesus as new temple and decisive sacrifice.
