Matthean scholars are nearly unanimous that LXX Psalm 129:8 [MT
130:8] is the allusive background to Matthew 1:21 notwithstanding
formidable semantic differences. Ezekiel 36:28b-29a; 37:23b, however,
provides a more convincing and more fruitful conceptual background
for Matthew’s programmatic verse. Semantic and thematic
considerations bear this out. The result of reading Matthew 1:21
through the lens of Ezekiel 36:28b-29a; 37:23b is the selection of
frames for reading the rest of the gospel in terms of the prophet’s
vision for Israel’s restoration from exile.

Dr. Piotrowski’s goal is to make explicit the manifold glories of God in the gospel of Jesus Christ for the good of the church and the world. To this end he hopes to instill in his students a philosophically consistent hermeneutic to the text of Scripture, and a cultural sensitivity for discerning the spirit of our age. Dr. Piotrowski believes that the Bible contains a unified metanarrative that can be brought to bear on the questions that postmoderns are asking. Courses he teaches include Hermeneutics, New Testament Survey I & II, Systematic Theology I, II & III, Theology of Culture, Apologetics, Greek and Hebrew. Dr. Piotrowski also has a passion for cultural apologetics—the engagement with long-standing cultural and social trends that bear on the broad perception of the plausibility of the gospel. The majority of his work has been done through the Fox Valley Theological Society (www.FVTS.net), of which he is a cofounder. His wife, Cheryl, and their two sons, Silas and Andreas, are excited to participate in what the Lord is doing through Crossroads!
