Charles Quarles’ A Theology of Matthew gives a refreshing but conservative, academic but devotional, rich but accessible introduction to the larger themes in the Gospel of Matthew.
Whilst in Philippi during his second missionary journey, Paul and his group run into a slave girl who has a spirit of divination (lit. a “python” spirit, Acts 16:16). She follows them, crying out “These men are servants of the Most High God, who proclaim to you the way of salvation”. After a few days of this,Paul is fed up, rebukes the spirit, and casts it out of her in the name of Jesus.
