This is volume 26 of The Anchor Bible, a new translation done book-by-book with accompanying introduction, notes, and comments. "Matthew" is translated and edited by the late William Foxwell Albright, senior editor of The Anchor Bible, and by C. S. Mann, dean of the Ecumenical Institute Theology, St. Mary's Seminary and University, Baltimore. "Matthew" is the most familiar of the gospels, best known for its parables, miracle narratives, and the long Sermon on the Mount. Recognized by the early Church as the most fitting introduction to the New Testament, its special concern is to announce Jesus as the fulfillment of the 0ld Testament. Hence its emphasis on the Law, on ethics based on the traditional theology of the Covenant, and on the centrality of Messianic hope. This commentary sets the understanding of Matthew in the context of its author's own religious and secular background. Believing that the text should be approached directly, the writers of the commentary make constant use of the recently discovered historical and linguistic evidence now available to elucidate it. This approach results in placing Jesus firmly within the framework of ascertainable Jewish tradition in first-century Palestine. The writers hold that the claim of Jesus to fulfill the Law and not to abolish it must be taken seriously. They have therefore taken a fresh look at the legal discussions in "Matthew." In the light of their examination, there emerges first a revaluation of the meaning attached to such key words as "parables" and "hypocrite" and then a new and vital significance for such words. The result is a new respect for "Matthew," a highly reliableearly source for the ministry of Jesus, and an examination of that ministry uncluttered by the presuppositions of various forms of modern "Platonism."

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.
