Series: Teach the Text Commentary

Publisher's Description

To craft informed sermons, pastors scour commentaries that often deal more with minutia than the main point. Or they turn to devotional commentaries, which may contain exegetical weaknesses. The Teach the Text Commentary Series bridges this gap by utilizing the best of biblical scholarship and providing the information a pastor needs to communicate the text effectively. By keeping the discussion of each carefully selected preaching unit to six pages of focused commentary, the volumes in this series allow pastors to quickly grasp the big idea and key themes of each passage of Scripture. Each unit of the commentary includes the big idea and key themes of the passage; sections dedicated to understanding, teaching, and illustrating the text; and full-color illustrations, maps,
and photo.

The newest release in this innovative commentary series is Jeannine K. Brown's treatment of the Gospel of Matthew.

Author Bio

Jeannine K. Brown (PhD, Luther Seminary) is professor of New Testament at Bethel Seminary in San Diego, California. She is the author or editor of numerous books and articles, including Scripture as Communication, Becoming Whole and Holy, and The Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels.

    This review was written for Matthew: Teach the Text Commentary Series.
    For what this commentary sets out to do, it is amazing!

    What it sets out to do is to streamline the lesson-preparation process for sermon development. It is geared more for sermon prep than it is for class prep; but it is nice for class prep too.

    The commentary gives bullet-style commentary of the text (Understanding the Text) followed by a section (Teaching the Text) that provides suggestions on what key points should be emphasized in the course of the lesson. This process is such a time-saver compared to the process of studying a text to death and then being at a loss for how to organize it into a lesson--and what to leave in, and what to leave out. Really, this commentary fills the gap between intensive study and sermon prep. The reader, if already comfortable with the text, can probably skip the "Understanding the text" section. I haven't tried that; but it would probably knock off another half hour of sermon prep.

    This commentary will not write your sermons for you. That's your job; but it sure helps you to sort out your thoughts.

    The commentary is not a substitute for deep study. In fact, it skips over the most difficult texts... those texts that denominations argue with each other about. For example, I checked out what Jeannine Brown said about Jesus' prediction of Peter's denials. Is Dr. Brown's perspective Calvinist, Arminian or Open? Dr. Brown said... nothing about it. If you want to address those sectarian questions, you will have to do your own extra study. The focus of this commentary is to aid in sermon prep, not to teach the text to the reader. Obviously, the position of the commentary is that the reader is already quite familiar with the text.

    Highly recommended for preachers!

    Incidentally, I am impressed with the physical quality of this book. It is printed on very high quality paper and it has lots of beautiful illustrations. The book would be equally valuable if printed on cheap media. The beautiful layout is a bonus. The book doesn't lie very flat (yet). Somebody needs to publish a nice reference commentary that has a spiral binding so it can easily lie flat on a table... but I digress.
