Product Description

How should churches and individual Christians react to the increasingly secular and amoral world in which we live? Through a study of three key chapters in Matthew's Gospel (chapters 8-10), Taylor argues that Matthew wanted his readers to understand God's perspective on the times in which we live. Through an analysis of the way in which Matthew presents the miracles Jesus performed and the teaching he gave his disciples, Taylor concludes that we do not live in a day which calls for judgment and condemnation, but rather one demanding gut-wrenching compassion for sinners and a bold proclamation of the forgiveness of sins Jesus came to bring. The arrival of King Jesus inaugurated the era of his kingdom rule, a foretaste of the world to come, but we still live in a fallen world which will inevitably be in conflict with his kingdom people. Taylor draws out the lessons Matthew was teaching about the terms and conditions of discipleship and the family ties of kingdom living. Above all, the urgent need for persevering and intense prayer is emphasised.

Editorial Reviews

It is a very wonderful expostion of Matt. 8 ff, with illumination, instruction and rich reward in every paragraph. To me it is exactly what a Bible commentary ought to be. In one of his 'preachers' notes he lamented the standard turgid (my word, not his) stuff detailing specialist (and uniformly unhelpful) theorising, and in another he urges the necessity to 'seek the logic' - i.e. discern the mind of the Holy Spirit. To me this is what commentating is 'all about'.
