The Gospel According to Matthew
This book appears in the following featured collections.
- Best Expositional Commentaries by Jim Rosscup
- Essential Commentaries for a Preacher's Library - NT by Derek Thomas
Kind of lacking on new creation theme and types in first few chapters, excels in Greek word studies and common sense judgements.
Morris is widely regarded as a superior commentator; he has contributed volumes on many books in a variety of commentary series. His volume on Matthew has received near-unanimous praise. Dr. Jim Rosscup of The Master’s Seminary says he “provides a thorough, clear, well-studied and mature tool based on the Greek but highly readable even for those who do not know Greek.” This neatly summarizes what I so enjoy about the PNTC series; it is scholarly and deep, yet readable for someone even with my rudimentary knowledge of Greek.

I am preaching through Matthew and have extensively used a number of commentaries. I find this commentary to be good. The author handles the material well. He doesn't dwell too long in any one place but doesn't leave anything short either. It is a solid work that I use every week.
Although his commentary has been overshadowed by the more recent works of France and others, one should not neglect the work of Leon Morris. [Full Review]
