Book Information

New Testament scholar and professor David L. Turner offers a substantive yet highly accessible commentary on Matthew in this latest addition to the BECNT series. With extensive research and thoughtful chapter-by-chapter exegesis, Turner leads readers through all aspects of the Gospel of Matthew—sociological, historical, and theological—to help them better understand and explain this key New Testament book. He also includes important insights into the Jewish background of this Gospel. As with all BECNT volumes, Matthew features the author’s detailed interaction with the Greek text. This commentary admirably achieves the dual aims of the series—academic sophistication with pastoral sensitivity and accessibility—making it a useful tool for students, professors, and pastors. The user-friendly design includes shaded-text chapter introductions summarizing the key themes of each thought unit.

I enjoyed Turner’s recent article “Matthew Among the Dispensationalists” in the Journal of the ETS, and was glad to find this 2008 full-length commentary written from a progressive dispensationalist viewpoint. Growing up, I imbibed a pretty hard-line dispensationalist take on Matthew (especially the “offer of the Kingdom”), and there are parts of the Gospel that I don’t think I’ll ever be able to read any other way. Turner is an excellent guide to what is best in that tradition of interpretation. [Full Review]
