REVIEWS
Themelios
"A distinctive and valuable and insightful commentary. With its abundant references to ancient literature and secondary literature, it can only be described as a remarkable tour de force. Solidly evangelical, deeply thoughtful, always informed and eminently practical, this is a commentary that will faithfully lead readers to the heart of Matthew."
Theology Today
"Craig Keener's commentary on Matthew brings his breathtaking acquaintance with the ancient literature of the first century to illuminate the First Gospel. This book offers a unique catalogue of references to Hellenistic and Judaic literature. Keener's remarkable capacity to associate these texts to the Gospel makes this work valuable for the references alone."
Interpretation
"Invaluable in its thorough discussion of social and historical background for virtually every sentence of the Gospel. The citations of both primary and secondary sources are encyclopedic. . . Keener's commentary sets a new standard in providing comprehensive and helpful background information."
David Instone-Brewer
Tyndale House, Cambridge
"Craig Keener's academic commentaries are among the most important in print, because they not only summarize former scholarship but add so many new insights from primary literature of the time."
