  • Matthew Jan 1, 2009
    by tikkun37

    This commentary on the Gospel of Matthew is not for the faint hearted. It is a technical commentary that takes in the prior scholarship concerning this Gospel. Yet it is written so that the educated, persistent layperson can read it and comprehend its meaning. Matthew was the Gospel of the Ebionites, a group of Jews who, while retaining their Jewish identity and observing the law, accepted Jesus as the Messiah. Matthew retains its overall Jewishness and this commentary helps to identify and illuminate that characteristic of the Gospel. This commentary is very helpful to anyone who wants to understand Jesus in the context of first century religion, politics, and social conditions. It is very highly recommended.
