Review 1 for Matthew 14-28: Word Biblical Commentary [WBC]
This is a very detailed and scholarly treatment of the Gospel of Matthew. Hagner writes from a moderately conservative Evangelical perspective. The comments on the Greek words and phrases are extensive and helpful. The bibliographies are fairly exhaustive. Those interested in textual criticism will appreciate Hagner’s efforts in that area. There are other commentaries that focus more deeply on theological concerns. Also, due to the intent of the series, practical applications are few and far between. But this is a very helpful book for advanced seminarians and scholars.
