AMG Publishers The Gospel of Matthew: The King is Coming - 21st Century Biblical Commentary

The Gospel of Matthew is all about the Kingthe King of the Jews, the King who came to die to save His subjects, the King who is coming again to establish His millennial kingdom, the King of Kings. That King is Jesus Christ. Matthew focuses on both the first and second comings of Christ, with the assurance that in both cases, indeed the King is coming! Hinson and Borland focus on Matthew, the tax collector turned disciple, as he writes to Jewish believers and unbelievers alike, taking into account the character and nature of the ministry of John the Baptist as the last of the prophets.

I picked up my first Twenty-First Century Biblical Commentary about two years ago.I don't remember which book was first, but I loved every page of it and I looked forward to every release. Matthew is the tenth addition to my Twenty-First Century Biblical Commentary collection. These books are so excellently written, well-ordered and user friendly. Using the Twenty-First Century Commentaries is like asking questions of some of today's best biblical scholars, exegeses, expositors and commentators and turning the pages and getting a direct answers to your questions. I love the style, the lay-out and the content of this series. I've already read through Matthew and I am anticipating the arrival of Hebrews and the Pastoral Epistles in January 2008! Just plain great commentaries!
