Seldom have such readable commentary and reliable research helps been available together! Preachers, teachers, students and other individuals who want to dig deep into the heart of the New Testament will find an indispensable companion in the IVP New Testament Commentary Series.
About this Volume
This one-volume commentary on Matthew can also be purchased as part of a multi-volume set.
Matthew was the most popular Gospel in the early church, widely read for its clear emphasis on Jesus' teaching. Drawing on its use as a teaching or discipleship manual, Craig Keener expounds Matthew as a discipleship manual for believers today. In his skilled hands, this first-century text becomes as relevant and contemporary as information downloaded from the internet, while it challenges us with its own divine perspective on how life ought to be lived.
In this clear, incisive commentary, readers will find an introduction with background material concerning authorship, date and purpose, as well as a summary of important theological themes. A passage-by-passage exposition follows that focuses on understanding the significance the Gospel of Matthew had for its original readers in order to see its relevance for the church today.
