The Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture series is a compilation of the commentary and exegesis of Scripture by the early church fathers. The editors of series chose the writings because of their "salient insight, rhetorical power, and faithful representation of the consensual exegesis of the early church." All editors are biblical and historical experts, familiar with both the writings of the fathers and church tradition.
And Manlio Simonetti is no different. He is a patristics expert, and teaches at both the University of Rome and the Augustinian Patristic Institute in Rome. He also wrote the book Biblical Interpretation in the Early Church: An Historical Introduction to Patristic Exegesis. His compilation of writings on Matthew displays a deep for the text of Matthew's gospel, and an equally deep reverence for the insight of the early church on the first gospel. Culling from writers like Origen, Jerome and John Chrysostom, Simonetti offers us a truly insightful look at Matthew's classic telling of Jesus' life and story. If you enjoyed his compilation for Matthew 1-13 you are sure to enjoy Matthew 14-28. The clear and unified insight of the early fathers is truly amazing.

buy this one. They are not cheap but worth the bucks IMHO. I love early church history and these are best I have found for what I needed.

Review 2 for Matthew 14-28: Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture [ACCS]
Date:March 28, 2009
This has been an excellent source of informantion during my study of Mathew. I highly recommend using these books as it enables one to understand the interpretation of the students of scripture in the very early times after the death of the disciples.We perhaps have kmore manuscripts available but we do not have the words of the ancient fathers at our finger tips except in these volumes. It is worth its price.
