As with virtually all the Tyndale Commentaries, this volume begins with a solid set of introductory articles. Topics like purpose and structure, authorship and date are well covered. Where the commentaries vary more is in the actually commentary. Here there is much to recommend as Dr. Kruse has valuable insights while staying solidly inside Christian doctrine. On the negative, there is a fair amount of repetition even in verses that are close to each other and some of the commentary is rather mundane. A bit more editing might have been in order. There are a few differences with the other volumes in the series. While generally the commentaries cover both a pericope and a paragraph, here there is more a phrase by phrase explanation. Also this volume contains the actual Scripture along with the commentary. In reading the four volumes covering the Gospels in the Tyndale series, all are solid and worth reading but it is the RT France volume that stands as the towering work.
