Distinguished Matthean scholar Charles Quarles forwards a faithful guide to the Greek text of Matthew that will benefit pastors, students, and scholars in this volume from the Exegetical Guide to the Greek New Testament series.
About the Series
The Exegetical Guide to the Greek New Testament (EGGNT) closes the gap between the Greek text and the available lexical and grammatical tools, providing all the necessary information for greater understanding of the text. The series makes interpreting any given New Testament book easier, especially for those who are hard pressed for time but want to preach or teach with accuracy and authority. Each volume begins with a brief introduction to the particular New Testament book, a basic outline, and a list of recommended commentaries. The body is devoted to paragraph-by-paragraph exegesis of the Greek text and includes homiletical helps and suggestions for further study. A comprehensive exegetical outline of the New Testament book completes each EGGNT volume.

Series: Exegetical Guide to the Greek New Testament
Daniel L. Akin, president, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary
"At a time when more and more people are bemoaning the state of teaching and preaching in our churches, its refreshing to read one Greek teacher who is trying to make things right. Quarles will give you a thorough immersion into the Greek text of Matthew without being pedantic or overly technical. His superbly researched work is foundational for the study of the first Gospel. Heres a guide that shows you the right way to use your Greek in ministry. My favorite sections are the homiletical suggestions that are based on the text itself. Quarles is fast acquiring master status on the Gospel of Matthew."
David Alan Black, Dr. M. O. Owens Jr. Chair of New Testament Studies and professor of New Testament and Greek, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary
"Quarles continues to distinguish himself as one of todays leading Matthean scholars with this commentary. Unlike the other volumes in the EGGNT series thus far, this is not a survey of the best of previous commentators with assessment of interpretive debates, but a full-fledged grammatical and discourse analysis of Matthew itself. Quarles blends the best of the classic Mounce/Wallace approach with the best of the newer Levinson/Runge approach to create a work like the Baylor Handbook on the Greek New Testament on steroids. A wonderful gift to both the academy and the church."
Craig L. Blomberg, Distinguished Professor of New Testament, Denver Seminary
"Quarles has provided exegetes of the Greek New Testament a model guide for the study and interpretation of the Gospel of Matthew. Readers will be impressed by the way this scholar and master teacher weighs the lexical and grammatical options judiciously and clearly. Quarless commentary is learned yet very readable. All exegetes of the Greek text will benefit from this carefully written book. I highly recommend it."
Craig A. Evans, John Bisagno Distinguished Professor of Christian Origins, Houston Baptist University
"These volumes aim to close the gap between the Greek text and the available tools: Greek language tools on the one side and commentaries and other studies on New Testament texts on the other. Quarles fills this gap admirably for Matthew. We get clear presentation, balanced judgments and a good sense of the value and limitations of language analysis for understanding this Gospel."
John Nolland, tutor in New Testament, Trinity College, Bristol, UK
"Of all the recently published New Testament and Greek resources, the EGGNT series is the one that excites me the most. You can think of this volume as a seminary-level Greek exegesis course in paperback. Also, each EGGNT volume provides sermon outlines based on the structure of the Greek textconnecting meticulous exegetical analysis to the faithful preaching and teaching of God's Word.
Quarless excellent new volume on Matthew will not disappoint. It is a faithful guide to the Greek text and will benefit students, pastors, and scholars for years to come."
Robert L. Plummer, professor of New Testament interpretation, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and host, Daily Dose of Greek
The Geeky Calvinist5 Stars Out Of 5A Needed WorkDecember 26, 2017The Geeky CalvinistQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5As a student of Biblical Greek, of which this mastery did not come easy, I am always on the lookout for new aids in the study of biblical original languages. Most of these works are in the form of reference materials, such as grammar books. The Exegetical Guide to the Greek New Testament series is a lexical aid and exegetical Biblical Greek commentary. One of the more phenomenal works in this fantastic series is Matthew by Charles L. Quarles, and edited by series editor Andres J. Kstenberger and Robert W. Yarborough and exceeds all of my preconceptions.
Needless to say , one must have a through knowledge of Biblical Greek to use this work. Yet if you do have a thorough knowledge of Biblical Greek then this exegetical guide is an invaluable resource for those who want to dig deeper into the text and shine light into difficult to translate passages. Digging into the work itself, it begins with the traditional introductory matters. This might be the only weakness of this aid, and the reason is that it is only two pages long, which could be expanded upon. Yet with these matters not being of primary importance in a lexical aid with some added commentary, two pages is all that is needed.
One of the greatest strengths is also found in the introduction section. Quarles has a small section that details what he perceives are the greatest and most helpful commentaries on the gospel of Matthew. After seeing the scholarly work which Quarles put into this exegetical guide these recommendations are worth the cost of the guide itself.
This aid to Matthew is truly unique in its approach; each verse is broken down with each Greek word being expertly dissected with a small argument about syntax and commentary. I look forward to the new installments in this recently begun series. In the end I fully recommend this work to any pastors who know their Biblical Greek and want to use it in their sermons.
