This essay is a review and assessment of Alan Kirk’s book Matthew in Q (Bloomsbury, 2016). After an overview of the book, the essay assesses Kirk’s work in three areas: 1) Matthew's memory of (without visual contact with) Mark and Q, 2) the type of literary dependence evidenced by Matthew, and 3) Matthew and the mechanics of ancient media.
