by F. F. Bruce

34None610,935NoneNone
The Gospel of Matthew, written for Jewish Christians, focuses on who Jesus is, why he came, and how he fits into God's bigger purposes. Matthew shows that Jesus is the long-expected Messiah, the bringer of God's kingdom. The most prominent feature of this gospel is the teaching of Jesus, which is arranged in five discourses that dominate the book's structure. This commentary is written by one of the most influential biblical scholars in recent times. F.F. Bruce's writing is clear, illuminates the biblical text, and explains the cultural context of the Bible. The Open Your Bible Commentary was written to encourage daily Bible study. Each reading is short, but the content is rich with careful explanation, devotional warmth, and practical relevance. Nearly 100 daily readings let you explore the Gospel of Matthew in depth. The Open Your Bible Commentary has four great strengths: - Accessible - it's written for the average, thoughtful Christian without assuming a great deal of background, yet it is never superficial. - Digestible - it's written so you can read a section or two a day, working your way through an entire book of the Bible in days or weeks. - Dependable - it's written by an amazing group of scholars and trusted pastor-teachers. - Practical - it's a rich combination of specific application and encouragement to listen to God for guidance. The commentary on Matthew is introduced by an overview, summary, outline, key themes, and relevance of this gospel for today.… (more)
