Item description for The Gospel Of Matthew: A Commentary On The Greek Text (New International Greek Testament Commentary) by John Nolland...

Overview
Having devoted the past ten years of his life to research for this major new work, John Nolland gives us a commentary on the Gospel of Matthew that engages with a notable range of Matthean scholarship and offers fresh interpretations of the dominant Gospel in the history of the church. Without neglecting the Gospel's sources or historical background, Nolland places his central focus on the content and method of Matthew's story. His work explores Matthew's narrative technique and the inner logic of the unfolding text, giving full weight to the Jewish character of the book and its differences from Mark's presentation of parallel material. While finding it unlikely that the apostle Matthew himself composed the book, Nolland does argue that Matthew's Gospel reflects the historical ministry of Jesus with considerable accuracy, and he brings to the table new evidence for an early date of composition. Including accurate translations based on the latest Greek text, detailed verse-by-verse comments, thorough bibliographies for each section, and an array of insightful critical approaches, Nolland's Gospel of Matthew will stimulate students, preachers, and scholars seeking to understand more fully Matthew's presentation of the gospel narrative.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Gospel Of Matthew: A Commentary On The Greek Text (New International Greek Testament Commentary)?

A British Evangelical Work  Jul 4, 2006
John Nolland, expositor of The Gospel of Matthew in The New International Greek Testament Commentary Series (Eerdmans) has been working on this commentary for ten years. Believing that the apostle Matthew was not the author, he nevertheless holds that the portrayal of Jesus' ministry is mostly accurate and that the gospel was written prior to the destruction of the temple in 70 AD. In addition to a thorough exegesis of the Greek text, Nolland focuses on the presentation of Matthew as story.
 
A Decent Commentary (3.5 stars, since there was no option for it, I put 4)  Feb 23, 2006
There are many good things about this commentary. Nolland has a huge bibliography for anyone interested in further reading and research on Matthew. He provides a good deal of historical background that is helpful to understanding Matthew. But, the most beneficial part of the commentary to me was the literary structures (mainly the chiastic structures) that he would point out that seem to pervade Matthew. The book as a whole seems to be chiastic:

A. Introduction
B. First Discouse (Sermon on the Mount)
C. Teaching/Healing
D. Second Discourse
E. Teaching/Healing
F. Third Discourse (Parables)
E'. Teaching/Healing
D'. Fourth Discourse
C'. Teaching/Healing
B'. Fifth Discourse (Olivet Discourse)
A'. Conclusion

This can be scrutinized, of course, but generally it seems to work.

The one big detraction of the book was the text, source, and redaction critical approach that it seemed to take and Matthew's supposed interaction with Q. If you can get around that, then there are still some great insights that can be gleaned from this commentary.
