Matthew 8-20: A Commentary on the Gospel of Matthewby Ulrich Luz, Helmut Koester, James E. Crouch
This is the second of a three-volume commentary on the gospel of Matthew from Europe's leading Matthew scholar. Volume 1 Matthew 1-7 was previously published in the "Continental Commentaries" series. Luz's commentary is especially noteworthy, not only for his incisive exegesis, but also his keen eye for the importance of the history of interpretation and his attention to the relevance of the New Testament for contemporary Christian ethics. This commentary includes excursuses on Son of David; Matthew's Interpretation of the Parables; Peter in the Gospel of Matthew; and Son of Man.

"For the study of both the Old and the New Testament, the Hermeneia series of commentaries has made its mark...its commentaries have been well written by established scholars who have displayed their competence in them. The series should be welcomed by all scholars, students, pastors, and educated layfolk." (Joseph A. Fitzmyer, S.J. Professor Emeritus, The Catholic University of America)
