Reviews - What do customers think about Abingdon New Testament Commentary - Matthew (Abingdon New Testament Commentaries)?

Informative and helpful yet too interpretive  Jan 23, 2010
This commentary provides some helpful information especially connecting elements of Matthew with themes of the old and new testaments. The author, however, places too much emphasis on "Matthew's" reasons for writing certain things and presents it as "Matthew's" words rather than God's inspired Word.
