Overview

In the Christian Church the Gospel of Matthew has been considered the most important portrait of Jesus' life and message. Containing Jesus' Sermon on the Mount and a uniquely rich collection of parables, among many other things, Matthew has made a major contribution to the church throughout the centuries, and it still has much to say to the church today.

This superb commentary in the Pillar series explores the meaning and relevance of Matthew in an eminently straightforward fashion. Leon Morris writes for readers who use commentaries to discover further what the Bible means. Throughout, he makes clear what he considers to be the meaning of the Greek text that Matthew has bequeathed to the church. A perceptive introduction precedes Morris's warmhearted verse-by-verse exposition of Matthew, an exposition based on his own literal translation of the text. Now a standard reference work on the Gospel of Matthew, this mature, evangelically oriented commentary will continue to meet the needs of students, pastor, and general readers alike.

This is a great commentary. Dr. Morris spends most of his time explaining the text as it has come to us. Understand that this is not a critical commentary (Morris makes this clear in the introduction). If you are looking for a technical or critical commentary on Matthew, try D.A. Carson (EBC). If, however, you want a commentary on Matthew that reverently deals with the text and sets forth clear and cogent explanation, then you should add this to your shelf. It provides tremendous help in sermon preparation. Morris is a dependable exegete who provides much help with the text of Matthew.
