An excellent and very readable resume of the findings of research in the
past few decades on 'Cananaean' and 'Simon the Zealot' can be found in
the recently completed mammoth 2,327-page commentary on _The Gospel
according to Saint Matthew_ by W. D. Davies and Dale C. Allison
(published T & T Clark, Edinburgh) in Volume 2 on page 156, including
footnotes 53 and 54 on the same page.
