Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Written by notable evangelical scholars, each volume in the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament series treats the literary context and structure of the passage in the original Greek. The series consistently provides the main point, an exegetical outline, verse-by-verse commentary, and theology in application in each section of every commentary. Critical scholarship informs each step but does not dominate the commentary, allowing readers to concentrate on the biblical author's message as it unfolds. While primarily designed for those with a basic knowledge of biblical Greek, all who strive to understand and teach the New Testament will find these books beneficial. The ZECNT series covers the entire New Testament in twenty volumes; Clinton E. Arnold serves as general editor. In this volume, Grant Osborne offers pastors, students, and teachers a focused resource for reading the Gospel of Matthew. Through the use of graphic representations of translations, succinct summaries of main ideas, exegetical outlines, and other features, Osborne presents the Gospel of Matthew with precision and accuracy. Because of this series' focus on the textual structure of the scriptures, readers will better understand the literary elements of Matthew, comprehend the author's revolutionary goals, and ultimately discovering their vital claims upon the church today.

In my preaching, research, and personal study, I have benefitted greatly from numerous scholarly commentaries. One new budding commentary series is the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament (ZECNT), which promises 20 volumes by evangelical scholars on all the books of the NT. I was blessed to receive a review copy* of one of the latest volumes from the folks at Zondervan Academic and koinonia: Matthew by Grant Osborne. Osborne, professor of New Testament at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, is also the author of such works as The Hermeneutical Spiral and Revelation in the Baker Exegetical Commentary series. I was excited to start reading through this brand new, 1,152 page commentary on the book of the Bible that God really used to draw me close to him for the first time. I still remember leafing through the Gospel of Matthew with wonder as I read about Jesus. As I spent time in Matthew and in the commentary, I was once again blessed to sit in God's Word and ponder Jesus. Let me tell you right off the bat - I really like this new series and Osborne's volume.

About the ZECNT

Anyone who uses Bible commentaries with any regularity knows that there are a plethora of series out there, from every imaginable viewpoint and for the whole spectrum of possible audiences (uber-Bible nerd to regular Joe/Jill). One might ask, "Why another commentary series?" Clinton Arnold answers that question in the Series Introduction: This is a series for pastors and teachers who are looking for a "commentary series based on the Greek text.

Osborne believes that Matthew was composed between AD 65-67 in order to tell the story of Jesus and its impact on the leaders, the crowds, the disciples, and the demons, to share the gospel, to explore the reality of the kingdom, and to expose believers and unbelievers to the teaching and ethics of Jesus (Osborne 2010, under "The Purpose and Audience of Matthew's Gospel"). According to Osborne, the genealogy in Matthew 1 is a linear genealogy used by rulers to justify their power, rank, status, and political relationships. It shows the legal throne succession while Luke's genealogy shows the actual biological line (Osborne 2010, under "Structure and Literary Form").

In Matt 3:15, Osborne says that when Jesus says, "Let us do this to fulfill all righteousness," He is telling John the Baptist to baptize Him in order "to complete all that God has set out for Him to do" (Osborne 2010, under "Explanation of the Text").

Osborne sees the Sermon on the Mount as wisdom teachings mandated for all believers (Osborne 2010, under "Introduction to the Sermon on the Mount") in contrast to those who teach that these are kingdom ethics for the millennial era. Osborne interprets Matt 5:17 to mean that Jesus fulfills the Old Testament in His deeds and in His teachings (Osborne 2010, under "Explanation of the Text"). Being perfect as the Father in Heaven is perfect (Matt 5:48) means emulating the Father in all we say or do (Osborne 2010, under "Explanation of the Text").

There is also an insightful comment about Jesus driving the demons out of the men and giving them permission to enter the pigs. He says that no one would have faulted Jesus in the ancient world.

Several weeks ago, Zondervan Academic's blog, "Koinonia", announced a blog tour featuring some of the newly released volumes in the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament series. Through their generosity, I received a review copy of Grant Osborne's volume on Matthew.

It's my hope that this brief review will provide the reader with some basic information about the series, as well as the "Matthew" volume in particular, hoping that one will be able to make a good assessment as to whether the "Matthew" volume would be of general benefit to personal study and/or pastoral preparation.

General Remarks

I'm excited about the volumes in this series, as the ZECNT series is proving to be solidly evangelical, exegetically helpful, academically credible, and designed with the pastor-teacher in mind.

If grades were given out solely in terms of layout, construction, and design, the ZECNT would score very highly. This commentary is not small by any means (1154 pages), but its hardcover construction and binding are of great quality for such a sizeable book. The layout and design are clear and logical, with a very readable typeset.

Textually speaking, the commentary series, as a whole, utilizes 7 different components for the analysis of each pericope:

Literary Context
Each pericope is considered in light of how it functions within the book as a whole.

Main Idea
An incredibly helpful 1-2 sentence summary of the "big idea" of each pericope.

Translation and Graphical Layout
The commentator provides his translation of the Greek text. This part is particularly helpful for visualizing the interconnectedness and flow of the text, as each section is displayed with each clause or phrase on it's own line.
