Westminster John Knox Press The Gospel of Matthew, Volume One - eBook

Though we find the Gospel of Matthew first in the New Testament, many scholars believe that the Gospel of Mark is older. Matthew then is often seen as an expansion of Mark, incorporating most of the content of Mark while also adding sections that contain the teachings of Jesus, such as the Sermon on the Mount, and stories about the birth and infancy of Jesus. The phrase "This was to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet" appears sixteen times in the Gospel of Matthew suggesting an emphasis on fulfilling the Law and the Prophets, and implying that a Jewish audience may have been the first hearers of this Gospel. For them then and for us today, the Gospel of Matthew presents Jesus as one who is "God with us" even until the end of time. For almost fifty years and for millions of readers, The Daily Study Bible commentaries have been the ideal help for both devotional and serious Bible study. The New Daily Study Bible allows a new generation to appreciate the wisdom of William Barclay. With clarification of less familiar illustrations and inclusion of more contemporary language, The New Daily Study Bible will continue to help individuals and groups discover what the message of the New Testament really means for their lives.

Professor William Barclay (1907-1978) was a world-renowned New Testament interpreter and Professor of Divinity and Biblical Criticism at Glasgow University in Scotland. Having written more than fifty books, he is probably best known as the author of the seventeen New Testament volumes in The Daily Study Bible series.

This book has helped me greatly as a SS teacher. It is so interesting, I can hardly put it down and am really looking forward to getting into volume 2. This is my first study of William Barclay's studies and I am thrilled at his perception and explanations. A must read!!!
