Series: The Two Horizons New Testament Commentary

In this latest addition to the Two Horizons New Testament Commentary series, biblical scholar Jeannine Brown and theologian Kyle Roberts together illuminate the Gospel of Matthew for pastors, scholars, and serious students of Scripture.

Including an original translation of the text along with section-by-section commentary, this volume features chapters on “thinking theologically with Matthew” about such themes as kingdom, Christology, the Holy Spirit, and discipleship. Brown and Roberts also offer constructive theological engagement with a number of contemporary viewpoints, including feminist, global, political, and ethical (post-Holocaust) perspectives. At once interdisciplinary and insightful, their commentary will appeal to a wide readership.

Calvin Theological Journal
Matthew’s greatest contribution is its excellent interdisciplinary conversation, not only expressed throughout but also introduced thoroughly at the beginning.”
Joshua E. Leim in Interpretation
“I recommend this volume to anyone desiring to listen attentively to Matthew’s witness to the kingdom of God made manifest in Jesus Christ.”
Religious Studies Review
“[Matthew] is a book that will be useful to most students of the NT and is especially recommended to all looking to engage with the theological implications of Matthew’s work. The constructive approaches to the gospel found in the commentary’s closing section deserve a special comment. This section helps situate the first gospel in the complex North American and global environment of the twenty-first century, bringing into relief Matthew’s contributions to many pressing discussions of our time.”
Review of Biblical Literature
“[Brown and Roberts’s] unique approach of a theological reading of Matthew—following the ethos of the wider commentary series of which it is a part—succeeds in its goal of bridging biblical and systematic theology. These characteristics mark it out as an especially useful commentary that repays its study in rich dividends for theological exegesis and reflection, homiletical inspiration, and private devotional reading.
