In this commentary, Craig L. Blomberg examines the three main stages of Matthew's portrayal of Jesus' ministry. He brilliantly presents a theological understanding of the Gospel writer's presentation of Jesus' birth, teaching, mission, death, resurrection, and kingdom work. Blomberg's interaction with contemporary scholarship coupled with his fresh interpretations and applications make this work immeasurably valuable. It is an ideal tool for sermon preparation, classroom use, or individual and group in-depth study.
