"Talbert's work regularly offers fresh readings and new comparative materials, especially from Greco-Roman sources. A welcome contribution." --Dale C. Allison Jr., Pittsburgh Theological Seminary In this fresh commentary, the fourth of eighteen volumes in the Paideia series, a leading New Testament scholar examines cultural context and theological meaning in Matthew. This commentary, like each in the series, approaches each text in its final, canonical form, proceeding by sense units rather than word-by-word or verse-by-verse. Each sense unit is explored in three sections: (1) introductory matters, (2) tracing the train of thought, (3) key hermeneutical and theological questions. Graduate and seminary students, professors, and pastors will benefit from this readable commentary, as will theological libraries. About the series: Paideia commentaries explore how New Testament texts form Christian readers by attending to the ancient narrative and rhetorical strategies the text employs showing how the text shapes theological convictions and moral habits commenting on the final, canonical form of each New Testament book focusing on the cultural, literary, and theological settings of the text making judicious use of maps, photos, and sidebars in a reader-friendly format Endorsements "Most commentaries rewrite earlier commentaries. The better ones, to the contrary, often go their own way. Talbert's work happily is of the latter type. It regularly offers fresh readings and new comparative materials, especially from Greco-Roman sources. This is not a tired rehashing but a welcome contribution." --Dale C. Allison Jr., Errett M. Grable Professor of New Testament and Christian Origins, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary "In this stimulating reading of Matthew's Gospel, Charles Talbert draws on his extensive learning to attend insightfully to various cultural, literary, and theological dimensions of the Gospel. Students will find his clear prose, insightful discussion, and theological reflections especially valuable. I will be adding this commentary to course bibliographies." --Warren Carter, professor of New Testament, Brite Divinity School, Texas Christian University "With an impressive command of historical, textual, literary, cultural, and theological issues, Charles Talbert has produced a commentary on Matthew that is lucid, compelling, and eminently useful for interpretation and proclamation. In a crowded field of volumes on the First Gospel, this one stands out." --Thomas G. Long, Bandy Professor of Preaching, Candler School of Theology, Emory University -Publisher.
