In this commentary, Craig L. Blomberg examines the three main stages of Matthew's portrayal of Jesus' ministry. He brilliantly presents a theological understanding of the Gospel writer's presentation of Jesus' birth, teaching, mission, death, resurrection, and kingdom work. Blomberg's interaction with contemporary scholarship coupled with his fresh interpretations and applications make this work immeasurably valuable. It is an ideal tool for sermon preparation, classroom use, or individual and group in-depth study.

Review 1 for Matthew: New American Commentary [NAC]
Craig Blomberg has already provided us with what is probably the best introduction to the gospels (Jesus and the Gospels: An Introduction and Survey), and now the best (in my opinion) non-technical commentary on Matthew's gospel. This work is marked by mature and lucid exegesis that is as informative as it is edifying. Rather than re-shaping the work of other commentators, Blomberg has obviously thought through the exegesis himself, offering concise, clear and cogent explanation of the text. The footnotes offer some interaction with previous and current scholarship. Blomberg's work is a terrific supplement to the work of Carson, Gundry and Keener. Pastors and teachers will treasure this work.
