Abstract

HOW WAS THE VIRGIN MARY "LIKE A MAN" A Note on Mt. i 18b and Related Syriac Christian Texts BY JAMES LAGRAND Cambridge, England In a recent article, H. C. WaETJErr proposes "The Genealogy as the Key to the Gospel according to Matthew" 1). WAETJEN'S study includes a valuable survey of background material and possible literary sources for Matthew's account as well as a careful assessment of recent studies of the New Testament texts relating to Jesus' genealogy and birth. Focusing on Matthew's use of ambiguity, WaETJErr argues convincingly that discontinuity, as well as continuity, is fundamental to the writer's understanding of Jesus' origin: "Jesus' origin is ultimately not to be found in relation to the genealogy-as I : 18-25 indicates-for Jesus is the one who begets a new beginning" (Op. cit., p. 215). Mary eúpé8"Yj ?v yaaTpi Exousa ix me4wa<oq «you before being united sexually with Joseph, according to Mt. I 18b. In the note which follows, I shall attempt to follow some of the lines of WAET- JEN's analysis to a conclusion different from his about Mary's role in Jesus' origin. This conclusion, in turn, may provide the key to several puzzling statements about Jesus' origin
