Stuart K. Weber explores the covenant book of Matthew, including an overview of the synoptic gospels, and distinctives of Matthew in the useful introduction. Weber uses the Holman New Testament Commentary eight-step approach and teaching outline that helps the reader to internalize what has been read, organize its message, and prepare to share it with others. Based on the New International Version. The Holman New Testament Commentary offers expository explanation of the popular NIV text based on trusted, conservative scholarship. A multi-faceted a step approach leads the reader from the introduction with contemporary illustrations, through verse-by-verse commentary, to a conclusion and life application.
