Item description for Matthew: A Commentary. Volume 1: The Christbook, Matthew 1-12 (Matthew A Commentary #1) by Frederick Dale Bruner...

Overview
Recognized as a masterly commentary when it first appeared, Frederick Dale Bruner's study of Matthew is now available as a greatly revised and expanded two-volume work - the result of seven years of careful refinement, enrichment, and updating. Through this commentary, crafted especially for teachers, pastors, and Bible students, Bruner aims "to help God's people love what Matthew's Gospel says." Bruner's work is at once broadly historical and deeply theological. It is historical in drawing extensively on great church teachers through the centuries and on the classical Christian creeds and confessions. It is theological in that it unpacks the doctrines in each passage, chapter, and section of the Gospel. Consciously attempting to bridge past and present, Bruner asks both what Matthew's Gospel said to its first hearers and what it says to readers today. As a result, his commentary is profoundly relevant to contemporary congregations and to those who guide them. Bruner's commentary is replete with lively, verse-by-verse discussion of Matthew's text. While each chapter expounds a specific topic or doctrine, the book's format consists of a vivid, original translation of the text followed by faithful exegesis and critical analysis, a survey of historical commentary on the text, and current applications of the text or theme under study. In this revision Bruner continues to draw on the best in modern scholarship - including recent work by W. D. Davies and Dale C. Allison Jr., by Ulrich Luz, and by many others - adding new voices to the reading of Matthew. At the same time he cites the classic commentaries of Chrysostom, Jerome, Augustine, Luther, Calvin, Bengel, and the rest, who, like Bruner himself, were not simply doctrinal teachers but also careful exegetes of Scripture. Such breadth and depth of learning assure that Bruner's Matthew will remain, as a reviewer for Interpretation wrote, "the most dog-eared commentary on the shelf." Volume 1 of Bruner's commentary is called The Christbook because the first twelve chapters of Matthew are focused on the nature and work of Christ. As Bruner proceeds through these chapters, he shows how Matthew presents, step by step, central themes of Christology: Jesus' coming (chapters 1-4), his teaching (5-7), his miracles (8-9), his sermon on mission (10), and his person (11-12). Throughout the book there are also thoughtful discussions of significant topics such as baptism, marriage, Jewish-Christian relations, and heaven

Reviews - What do customers think about Matthew: A Commentary. Volume 1: The Christbook, Matthew 1-12?

Mathematician Matthew the Meticulous  Oct 9, 2007
For over 4 years have never ceased to use Dale's MATTHEW. A very deep well.
Panoramic in vision and true, not PC , tolerance and charity to all mark every section.
The second edition adds much, eg on baptism, intrigueing. outreaching.
ALWAYS central is the Redeeming Atoning Cross-bound and Resurrected Savior, our Lord.
Buy it , beg it, or.........pray for a JESUS CHRISTmas gift from your best friend.

This is a Theological Masterpiece  Dec 12, 2006
This commentary is indispensable to the Pastor and Biblical teacher. It's scope is different than most, unlike the hardcore technical commentaries such as ICC or WORD commentaries (both excellent), this commentary is written practically and theologically. Dr Bruner weaves the reformation, church fathers and contemporary scholars insights and helps. Dale Bruner is a marvelous writer and theologian. As I read this commentary, I cannot help but to come to emotion as I see the Christ described in such great beauty and insight.
 
None Better  Dec 5, 2005
I've read many commentaries on the gospels. Finding a commentary that is helpful for preaching and teaching is frankly, rare. Either they are too technical to be helpful to people living daily life, or too superficial to give people a sense that they have been given the word of God. Dale Bruner's Matthew commentary (both volumes) is hands down the best. Often if I am selecting a section of scripture that appears in the synoptics, I'll go with the Matthew because I know Dale Bruner's commentary will have by far the best combination of fresh insight, biblical grounding and practical reality.
 
A Really Superb Commentary  Dec 8, 2004
I have the best commentaries on the Gospel both in english and spanish (name them, Davies and Allison, Ulrich Luz, Keener, Schnackenburg. Meier, Hagner etc.) and I received this 2 volume set and it is fantastic. The author is both comprehensive and simple, and he gives you glimpses that are diamonds for your sharing the gospel in a way that is both true to the Greek Text, the historical context and the church of today. To have this book is a really joy. Pray for the author who tries his best to be true to the Message of Jesus and Matthew.
