With its rich teaching on discipleship, the gospel of Matthew is a wellspring of instruction on Christian living. Its use of the Old Testament also shows how old covenant promises are fulfilled in the new and how the law of Moses exercises its authority today.
Daniel Doriani, a pastor and scholar recognized for his works on biblical interpretation, pays careful attention to the structure, backgrounds, and grammar of Matthew in order to furnish pastors and students of the Word with the Christ-centered commentary and the personal and corporate applications they need. Each chapter of this two-volume work seeks to express Matthew’s original intent in ways that evoke his distinct voice and thereby fulfill the goal of Matthew’s gospel—making disciples by forming the mind, heart, and hands of believers.
As part of the Reformed Expository Commentary series, this commentary is written for both pastors and lay teachers. Each volume in the series provides exposition that gives careful attention to the biblical text, is doctrinally Reformed, focuses on Christ through the lens of redemptive history, and applies the Bible to our contemporary setting.
“Some commentaries lose the forest for the trees, and others the trees for the forest,” says Mark Dever. “This series promises to be both exegetically sensitive and theologically faithful.” Michael Horton adds, “The fruit of pastoral ministry, the Reformed Expository Commentary series marvelously exhibits the model of the pastor-scholar.”
