Abstract

This article examines Matthew's warrant for linking the christological title "Son of David" with Jesus' healing activity, arguing that the Evangelist based this connection on the Davidic Shepherd of Ezekiel 34. The study will seek to demonstrate this premise by sketching a composite of the Matthean "Son of David" and comparing this composite to Ezekiel's Davidic Shepherd, bringing to light the contextual, verbal and thematic links between Matthew's Son of David motif and Ezekiel 34, and by pointing out the inadequacies of other competing theories.
