The summaries in 4:23 and 9:35 characterize in a few strokes of the pen the activities of Jesus in Galilee during a long period of time. 21 In 11:25, we come across the time adjunct ἐν ἐκείνῳ τῷ καιρῷ, that is then repeated twice (12:1 and 14:1). This formula indicates that the time has come when Jesus confronts those around him with the necessity to make decisive choices. In Jerusalem, Jesus debates with various adversaries for a whole day in the temple (see 21:18: “in 20 21 Gerd Häfner, “ ‘Jene Tage’ (Mt 3,1) und die Umfang des matthäischen ‘Prologs’,” BZ 37 (1993): 51, challenges the idea that there is a deep caesura between 2:23 and 3:1 and he considers the “in those days” used in 3:1 to be a “Verknüpfung von für den Evangelisten zeitlich zusammengehörenden Ereignissen”.

With this double function in mind, I refer to them as hinge texts. In the following subsections, I will indicate 28 Warren Carter, “Kernels and Narrative Blocks: The Structure of Matthew’s Gospel,” CBQ 54 (1992): 463–481. , Matthew: Storyteller, Interpreter, Evangelist (Peabody, MA: Hendrickson, 1996), 159–175. 31 The Macrostructure of Matthew ’ s Gospel which passages fulfil this double function and examine the scope of the narrative blocks that precede and follow these hinge texts. 4 Matt 4:12–17 and 26:1–16 as Hinge Texts Within the Book as a Whole Partly on the basis of the above, I will gradually develop a new outlook on the macrostructure of Matthew.
