Matthew 1-2 and the Virginal Conception examines early Palestinian and Hellenistic Jewish accounts of the birth of Israel's first redeemer, Moses. The author shows how these accounts provide the background of Mary's "virginal conception" of Jesus, Israel's final redeemer, in Matthew 1-2.

MEDIA REVIEWS
As ever with Aus, there are always plenty of new things for the reader to learn, especially with his typically impressive array of rabbinic interpretations...Ultimately, there are few scholars who can match Aus's proficiency in both rabbinic sources and the NT texts, coupled with a genuinely critical attitude...Is it really worth the risk for historically and literary minded scholars to ignore Aus's profound expertise in such areas any longer? * Review of Biblical Literature *
Perhaps the most systematic presentation available of all the possible connections between the [Matthean story and elements of haggadic midrash about the birth of Moses]. -- Wayne Meeks, Yale University * Review of Biblical Literature *
