David E. Garland is professor of religion at Baylor University in Waco, Texas. Edited by Charles H. Talbert, Distinguished Professor of Religion at Baylor University in Waco, Texas, the Reading the New Testament commentary series presents cutting edge biblical research in accessible language that is both coherent and comprehensive.From Library Journal:
This commentary, organized by large sections, relates Matthew's concerns in his introduction of Jesus (chapters 1-4) to those in his account of Jesus' ministry (4-16) and of Jesus' passion, death, and resurrection (16-28). Garland (New Testament, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary) writes for clergy, informed laity, and students interested in the larger picture of Matthew's gospel based upon close textual reading. For instance, he discusses Matthew's disrupting the genealogical pattern of "X the father of Y" by including, contrary to normal pattern, five women. To Garland, Matthew is especially "narrative about Jesus Messiah, son of God" and was intended to reveal the true nature of the individual. Recommended for seminary, undergraduate, and public libraries.
