The best Bible study resource I've found since seminary - yet highly accessible!

Tom Wright has given a well written and simple to read commentary that is in no way lacking in theological truth and depth. I recommend not only part 2 of Matthew, but part one and the entire Everyone Series by Tom Wright.
Oftentimes it seems that when reading the gospel it can be difficult to maintain focus and connect the parts from beginning to end and to Wright's credit, he not only does that, but does it remarkably well. He always has great insight into the meaning of the text and a good example of this is in the passage about Judas (Matthew 27:1-10) who brings the thirty pieces of silver back to the Temple (that Jesus has recently condemned) exclaiming thathe is guilty of betraying innocent blood. Wright points out that the function of the Temple was to deal with guilt, but it is either unable or no longer willing to serve its function and Judas is a case in point. Judas goes and commits suicide from there and the Temple is partly to blame. This type of insight is not an issolated event in this book, but instead you will find it insightful. Wright deals with often misunderstood texts like Matthew 24 and 25 and the book is worth purchasing just to get at the real meaning of these passages. One more point, he has done deep reflection on the meaning of the cross and resurrection accounts and you will not be disappointed in what you learn and how you are again touched by the meaning of these events. I recommend this book for Everyone.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Fr. Charles Erlandson TOP 1000 REVIEWER on August 15, 2010
Format: Paperback
"Matthew for Everyone" is part of the New Testament series of books by N.T. Wright, which includes "Mark for Everyone" all the way through "Revelation for Everyone." The series is nothing less than sensational and, in spite of his contributions to theological debates, is one of Wright's most important contributions to the good of the Church.

I'm studying various commentaries and devotionals to find those that are most profitable for God's people, including myself, and Wright's "_______ for Everyone" series is a magnificent set of commentaries I highly recommend. One of the most remarkable aspects of the series is Wright himself who is not only a world-class theologian and scholar but also, it turns out, an exceptional popular writer. In each volume in the series, Wright makes use of his academic knowledge of the language of the Bible (he provides his own translation of each book!) and the historical and literary background and combines it with an enjoyable, readable style. He has accomplished something that I as a priest, teacher, and writer can only hope to imitate in a less monumental way.

Wright's commentaries have a different flavor from most commentaries. He doesn't comment on or explain each verse but looks at each passage as a whole, making comments on the key themes and most important points. He brings to life the distant ancient world of the New Testament in a way that Everyone can understand. One of the things that helps him do this is the useful illustrations that he uses throughout. While the books in the series are not exactly devotional commentaries, the fact that they are popular, use illustrations, and offer brief reflections on the meaning of the passage for today, they can be used in devotional way.

Format: Paperback
Wright as penned one of the most engaging and interesting series of commentaries I've ever read. And I've read a few. Up till now, my favorite series was J. Vernon McGee's which is still worth having in your library. But I don't think it touches Wright's Everyone series. Sorry McGee fans.

Wright is not only a New Testament scholar, but he is also a historian. He does a superb job of placing the reader in the proper historical and cultural context in order to get the full impact of Matthew's narrative.

The power of the Gospel is fully on display as Matthew's story climaxes with religious and political powers. The Gospel of Jesus is not passive; it takes on power brokers in the Temple and the Halls of so-called Roman Justice. It exposes the collusion of religion and government and defeats the ultimate weapon they have in their arsenals: death. Jesus takes onto himself all the evil they can deal out and the consequences for sin we all deserve. It is definitely action packed story telling. It's a story where you are cast as a central figure.

This is not Wright at the academic or debate event. Instead he sorts out how the text applies to ordinary life. His approach is still informed by his expertise in historical analysis, its just not front and center like his more technical books. As always, however, Wright captures the flow of the narrative. Often we only hear exposition in small disconnected (atomistic) bits. Not here - there is attention paid to how the evangelist sought to convey his message to his audience for the whole document. Finally Wright is vulnerable and transparent- his illustrations show how these passages have figured in his many years as a pastor as well as a church leader.

I find that N.T. Wright has a new way of looking at things than many commentaries. Part of the reason is that this one is also part of his "for Everyone" series. I have used three different ones so far and found them helpful in preparing a sermon and thought provoking. I plan to get most of his "for Everyone" books before I retire.
