Abstract

Matthew, therefore, far from taking Isaiah 7:14 out of context, recognized the larger Messianic context of Isaiah 7 to 12, which critical scholarship has usually ignored. Did Matthew twist the Scriptures? No! He saw the dual focus of the prophecy, with the ultimate fulfillment climaxing in the virgin birth of the Messiah. This is just one of the many alleged New Testament “twistings” of Old Testament Scripture in which the New Testament writers consistently remained faithful to the original passages in their immediate and wider Old Testament contexts.
