Product Description

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 theapostle 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, this commentary will you to understand more fully Matthew's presentation of the gospel narrative.

Publisher's Description

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.

Editorial Reviews

Theological Book Review
"Although some may be daunted, or perhaps even wearied, by the appearance of another massive work on the Gospel of Matthew, readers will be pleasantly surprised that Nolland manages to balance exegetical detail with theological perspective which has resulted in a usable and well documented commentary."

Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society
"A refreshingly clear and accessible contribution that depicts the fruit of very careful, learned, and reasoned scholarship at its finest."

Religious Studies Review
"Enormously learned, exhaustive in its detailed textual, literary, redaction- and source-critical comments and bibliographical material, and interesting, useful, and accessible to a wide range of readers."

    John Nolland delivered this major, massive commentary on Matthew in the highly-respected New International Greek Testament Commentary (NIGTC) series. Ive had his three-volume commentary on Luke in WBC for several years, and had heard that most scholars found this volume on Matthew more energetic and robust than the earlier one on Luke. After my own interaction with this commentary, I fully agree with that assessment. Further, though this is a Greek series, those who do not read Greek will find no problem as most every Greek phrase has its English counterpart nearby. For that reason, a wider range of readers than you might expect can check out this thoroughly scholarly volume.

    The bibliographies in this book are gigantic. On the other hand, the Introduction is shorter than I expected. The commentary proper is the perfect length for the important Book of Matthew. If you want to know the authors viewpoint, he defines it himself in the preface as a redaction-critical work that also uses narrative criticism.

    He begins the Introduction with a discussion of the authorship of Matthew. Unfortunately, he finds it unlikely that Matthew wrote the book. In the next section, he wrote about the sources of Matthew with a grating certainty that I could not follow at all. In fairness, however, hes no worse than many other scholars who write the major exegetical commentaries. In a surprising twist for one who doubts the authorship of Matthew as being Matthew, he still finds the book written fairly early, at least before 70 A.D. The Introduction became much more helpful when he wrote about the provenance of Matthew and other structural and unique features of Matthew. He managed to dip back into the unproductive conversation of sources at other points of the introduction, but was much more productive when he discussed the theology of Matthew. What you dont want to miss his annotated structural outline of Matthew. That was an awesome way to present an outline!

    In the commentary proper, each passage has his translation, brief textual notes, a bibliography for just that passage, and clearly marked off commentary of each verse. He is very thorough in what he addresses. While there are plenty of examples of some esoteric features that only appeals to scholars, theres much productive, interesting, and helpful information to be gleaned from what he has written.

    The competition is fierce among major exegetical commentaries on the Gospel of Matthew, but this volume cannot be overlooked because of the important contribution it makes to scholarship.

    I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255.

    Nolland's redaction criticism approach is evident throughout the verse by verse commentary, with numerous parallelisms drawn with Mark and Luke. The result is a highly technical commentary that closely traces the flow of Matthew's thought and use of sources. A bit lengthy and wordy at times and can get caught up in the details, the organization and structure of commentary could be better. Great as a supplement for exegesis and detailed study of the text of Matthew but better off looking at another less technical and more pastoral commentary like Carson, Blomberg, Morris or Osborne to get at the meaning and application of the text.

    I do not know of any scholars around today who do not recommend this book as far as an in depth study of Matthew goes.If your wondering if its buyable I would like to say it is a worthy buy for this great Gospel.

    The previous review should be rethought because while his comments may be true, regarding too much time for a preacher, this set is not advertised nor intended as a preachers' commentary. With that in mind, it is excellent when considering it is and was intended as a scholar/exegetical commentary.

    What this commentary lacks in substance, it makes up in volume. Even with 1600 pages, Nolland has given us very little helpful information. For example, in his discussion on 3:10, Nolland spends an entire paragraph on the lack of firewood in palestine.It is obvious that Eerdmans has no real consideration of the limits of a pastor's time or budget (this commentary retails for $80). A very poor choice for anyone interested in more than trivial matters.
