I argue that Kingsbury equivocates between the Matthean Jesus and the historical Jesus. In addition, Kingsbury posits a false dichotomy between literary and traditio-historical methods of studying Matthew. Kingsbury’s study reveals much about the Matthean Jesus but, unfortunately, rather little about the historical Jesus or assessing the latter’s relevance for contemporary theological discussions.
