Item description for Matthew: An Introduction and Commentary (Tyndale New Testament Commentaries) by R. T. France...

Overview
The visit of the Magi, the Sermon on the Mount, the Great Commission: these are only a few of the well-known passages in Matthew's Gospel. Yet it begins with a list of unknown names and apparently irrelevant 'begettings'. The early church may have placed Matthew first in the New Testament because it provides a Christian perspective on the relation between the church and the Jews, an issue that is still important today. R. T. France tackles this and other key issues in the Gospel with clarity, reliability and relevance. The original, unrevised text of this volume has been completely retypeset and printed in a larger, more attractive format with the new cover design for the series. The Tyndale New Testament commentaries are designed to help the reader of the Bible understand what the text says and what it means. The Introduction to each book gives a concise but thorough treatment of its authorship, date, original setting and purpose. Following a structural Analysis, the Commentary takes the book section by section, drawing out its main themes, and also comments on individual verses and problems of interpretation. Additional Notes provide fuller discussion of particular difficulties. The goal throughout is to explain the true meaning of the Bible and make its message plain.

Reviews - What do customers think about Matthew: An Introduction and Commentary (Tyndale New Testament Commentaries)?

Recent Purchase  Feb 17, 2010
The book I ordered was exactly as described and delivery was even faster than promised.
 
Excellent, given the scope of the series  Sep 15, 2007
It is difficult to rate this fairly because you have to ask about the intended audience. If you are looking for an in-depth scholarly treatment of Matthew, this would be 2 stars. However, that's not the scope of this series. I've used many Tyndale NT commentaries over the years, and it is a very good series, but not as in-depth as NICNT, NIGTC, WBC, etc. With that said, France does an excellent job commenting on the kinds of questions people turn to a commentary for, and not spending too much time on the blah, blah, blah, that fills the pages of so many commentaries. While you aren't getting all the details, you are getting the fruits of top-notch scholarship. It's a great commentary, given its scope.
 
Good commentary  Aug 1, 2006
Though all the commentaries in this series are not equal, this is very good. His exposition of Ch.24 is well argued, even if you don't agree with his conclusions.
