Hailed as a benchmark work in biblical scholarship and modern methodology with its original publication in 1982, this new edition of Gundry's commentary is now even more valuable to students, pastors, and theologians. The 200 additional endnotes and new appendix expand the commentary and offer fresh reflection on the text. In the new preface, Gundry addresses readers' criticism of his first edition and details evidence that Jewish literary tradition was more concerned with purpose than with history. Throughout, Gundry retains his redation-critical methodology as well as his provocative interpretations of the Gospel of Matthew. An excellent example of the benefits of constructive professional dialogue and meticulous hermeneutical research. 744 pages, softcover from Eerdmans.
