Item description for Commentary-Matthew 1-7 (MacArthur NT Series) by John MacArthur...
Overview This New Testament commentary series reflects this objective of explaining and applying Scripture. Some commentaries are primarily linguistic, others are mostly theological, and some are mainly homiletical. This one is basically explanatory, or expository. It is not linguistically technical, but deals with linguistics when this seems helpful to proper interpretation. It is not theologically expansive, but focuses on the major doctrines in each text and on how they relate to the whole of Scripture. It is not primarily homiletical, though each unit of thought is generally treated as one chapter, with a clear outline and logical flow of though. Most truths are illustrates and applied with other Scripture. After establishing the contest of passage , I have tried to follow closely the writer's development and reasoning.
My prayers is that each really will fully understand whet the Holy Spirit is saying through this part of His Word, so that His revelation may lodge in the minds of believers and bring greater obedience and faithfulness-to the glory of our great God.

Reviews - What do customers think about Commentary-Matthew 1-7 (MacArthur NT Series)?
Conservative: Thorough, Scholarly, Yet Easily Understood Aug 24, 2001
Good solid hermeneutics and clear presentation make this an ideal volume for the pastor, student, or serious layperson. MacArthur is not only an excellent Bible teacher, but he writes simply for popular use, yet nothing is water-down. This is a most thorough work, useful in preparing sermons, lessons, or personal growth. MacArthur interprets from a moderate dispensational viewpoint and seems to follow obejctive principle of interpretation. He brings in a generous amount of cultural and background information, as well as other Bible texts. I suggest you purchase the entire Matthew set. There is probably none finer.
