This book is a verse-by-verse analysis of the New Testament Gospel of Matthew. It provides a comprehensive introduction to the gospel, which describes the world of Jesus and his first followers. This commentary explores the historical, social, and religious contexts of Matthew and examines the customs, beliefs, and ideas that inform the text. Unfamiliar to many readers of the New Testament, this background will help readers fully understand the text of Matthew, which focuses on what Jesus taught and why the religious authorities in Jerusalem rejected his message and gave him up to the Roman governor for execution. This book will be an important tool for the clergy, scholars, and other interested readers of Matthew.Read more

Reviews & endorsements
"… this is an extremely valuable commentary that should take its place beside the best on the shelf. In the preface Evans states that this work 'is not written primarily for the scholar', but he expresses his hope, nonetheless, that 'scholars will find it useful' … They will."
