Turner attempts to stand between scholars and preachers to offer a commentary that is fresh, accessible, and insightful. He emphasizes Matthew as a literary work in its own right (rather than in relation to Mark and Luke) and includes important insights into the Jewish background of this Gospel, explaining Matthew in the context of Second Temple Judaism as a book for Christian Jews living among non-believing Jews.
As with all BECNT volumes, Matthew features the author's own translation of, and detailed interaction with, the original Greek text. The interior design includes shaded-text chapter introductions summarizing the key themes of each thought unit and their connection to what precedes and follows.
David L. Turner (Th.D., Grace Theological Seminary) is professor of New Testament and systematic theology at Grand Rapids Theological Seminary. He has also completed coursework for a PhD from Hebrew Union College. He is the author of the Matthew commentary in Cornerstone Biblical Commentary.
