Overview

The Gospel of Matthew, said James Montgomery Boice, is "the first of the Gospels, the longest, the most Jewish, the most evangelistic, and, in many ways, the most compelling."
This two-volume expositional and inspirational commentary on the Book of Matthew integrates rigorous scholarship and clear communication. It will inform and help a wide range of readers--from serious Bible students to interested laypersons--understand and apply the truths found in the text.
Both volumes deal with Matthew's emphasis on Jesus as the Messiah or King of Israel. Topics in volume 1, The King and His Kingdom, include:
"The Coming of the King"(1:1-4:25)
"The Sermon on the Mount" (5:1-7:29)
"The Power of the Kingdom" (8:1---10:42)
"Is Jesus Really God's King?" (11:1-12:50)
"The Parables of the Kingdom" (13:1-13:58)
"The Withdrawal of the King"(14:1-17:27)
Boice not only explains the meaning of the text verse by verse and section by section, he also relates the text's concerns to the world in which we live, the life of the church, and the realities of the Christian life.
