In the Christian Church the Gospel of Matthew has been considered the most important portrait of Jesus' life and message. Containing Jesus' Sermon on the Mount and a uniquely rich collection of parables, among many other things, Matthew has made a major contribution to the church throughout the centuries, and it still has much to say to the church today.

This superb commentary in the Pillar series explores the meaning and relevance of Matthew in an eminently straightforward fashion. Leon Morris writes for readers who use commentaries to discover further what the Bible means. Throughout, he makes clear what he considers to be the meaning of the Greek text that Matthew has bequeathed to the church. A perceptive introduction precedes Morris's warmhearted verse-by-verse exposition of Matthew, an exposition based on his own literal translation of the text. Now a standard reference work on the Gospel of Matthew, this mature, evangelically oriented commentary will continue to meet the needs of students, pastor, and general readers alike.

Kind of lacking on new creation theme and types in first few chapters, excels in Greek word studies and common sense judgements.

Morris is widely regarded as a superior commentator; he has contributed volumes on many books in a variety of commentary series. His volume on Matthew has received near-unanimous praise. Dr. Jim Rosscup of The Master’s Seminary says he “provides a thorough, clear, well-studied and mature tool based on the Greek but highly readable even for those who do not know Greek.” This neatly summarizes what I so enjoy about the PNTC series; it is scholarly and deep, yet readable for someone even with my rudimentary knowledge of Greek.

I am preaching through Matthew and have extensively used a number of commentaries. I find this commentary to be good. The author handles the material well. He doesn't dwell too long in any one place but doesn't leave anything short either. It is a solid work that I use every week.

Although his commentary has been overshadowed by the more recent works of France and others, one should not neglect the work of Leon Morris. [Full Review]
