Description

Matthew's Gospel is the first document in the New Testament - a suitable location considering some scholars' opinions (for example, Theodor Zahn and Ernest Renan) that it is the pre-eminent piece of literature in antiquity. What sort of book is it? Who is its author, and why did he write it? What historical, literary and theological contexts influence it? Matthew's Gospel also tells a story of Jesus, the son of David the son of Abraham - accordingly it gives attention to characters, plot lines, conflicts and resolution - but the extra dimension is that it also has an effect upon its reader to direct them to the Saviour of the world.

Reviews

"This thoughtful and thorough commentary on the First Gospel comes from a scholar who has obviously spent many years at the feet of Matthew the teacher, and even more importantly, at the feet of the One to whom Matthew bears witness."

Jonathan T. Pennington, Associate Professor of New Testament Interpretation, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky


"What, you might say, am I to do with 2 volumes and 1,400 pages on Matthew? Well, what should you do if given two million pounds? Spend it, of course--but not all at once. So with Chamblin's Matthew. Preach an Advent series--and use Chamblin on chapters 1-2; then preach from the Old Testament and come back to the Sermon on the Mount--and use Chamblin on chapters 5-7; then map out a series on Matthew's passion narrative--and use Chamblin on chapters 26-28. I'm not a hypocrite--I'm using him on Matthew 13 even as I write this!"

Dale Ralph Davis, Minister in Residence, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina
