Editorial Reviews

Review

"The authors' meticulous and accurate scholarship, the breadth of their reading, their careful and essentially sensible opinions and judgements are the constant reactions readers should have when consulting this commentary. For any serious scholar of the Gospel of Matthew, this new ICC must be the first port of call, not only for its own exegetical treatment of Matthew, but for alerting us to a vast range of previous comment, patristic, medieval, and modern, and also to an impressively full bibliography of recent articles, monographs and studies on all aspects of this Gospel. This is no realistic substitute in English for this commentary if one is at work on the Greek text of Matthew. That the authors (and their publisher) acomplished their task of producing the three volumes in ten years is itself a prodigious feat."—Novum Testamentum (Novum Testamentum)

"How should this massive work of scholarship be assessed? The three volumes stand as one of the major commentaries on the Gospel of Matthew in which all future interpreters of the Gospel will find a source of fruitful dialogue and helpful ideas. It is a "must have", both in libraries and in footnotes. Davies and Allison are to be thoroughly commended on the fruits of their considerable toil." —Seminary Studies (Seminary Studies 37)

'[The authors] have set a very high standard indeed, and it is doubtful whether their commentary will be seriously challenged in the very near future. The third and final volume of this magnificent commentary, like the first two volumes, will become an indispensable text for all scholars and students who work on the Gospel of Matthew.'
David C. Sim, Australian Biblical Review

5 of 7 people found the following review helpful By William Pinches on September 20, 2008
Format: Paperback
I own a lot of biblical commentaries. I have shelves and shelves full of commentaries. As a pastor, I have a responsibility to make sure that the message I am proclaiming is a responsible, well-informed, theologically grounded interpretation of the biblical passage at hand that says something to us about who God is and what that means for how we are called to go about living our lives. Some biblical passages are, quite simply, difficult to understand. I routinely take comfort in the fact that there have been countless generations of Christians before me who have wrestled with similar questions about how to interpret scripture faithfully in a particular context. There are many people who have devoted much time and energy to reading scripture and telling others what it all means. Frankly, I find some much more helpful than others. Sometimes I read commentaries and find myself thinking, "I didn't learn a thing from that." Other times, I think, "Well, that was interesting historical background, but I'm still left with the question of what this means for me and for the community of faith for which I have a responsibility to provide spiritual leadership." And at other times, I find myself thinking, "I could have done better than that myself."

In all my travels through the scriptures, and in all the time and energy I have spent poring over commentaries and other theological tomes, I have found only two commentaries on Matthew's gospel that I consistently find to be helpful, clear, informative, grounded, articulate, and thought-provoking. I have found only two that, when I read them, I have "Aha!" moments, and I find myself energized and amazed by what I am reading, and can't wait to share it with others.

This is a very fine scholarly commentary. It goes through Matthew in 3 volumes. Sometimes its comments are brief, but it does not disappoint. This is for a somewhat advanced student of Scripture who has a knowledge of Greek. D.A. Carson in his analysis of available commentaries recommends it.
