The relationship between John and the Synoptics is a perennial question, and Matthew has long been considered the least likely written source of the Fourth Gospel. In an ambitious reappraisal, James Barker demonstrates John's use of Matthew. Barker's three case studies focus on ecclesial authority, proof from prophecy, and the question of whether to include or exclude Samaritans from the early church. Although John's engagement with Matthew was by no means uncritical, Barker concludes that John intended his gospel to be read alongside, not instead of, Matthew's.
