About Matthew 1-13 (Volume 33a):
Bringing his textual skills and insights to bear on the ten year task of crafting this commentary, Dr. Hagner helps his readers to see the full gamut of scholarly debate on Matthew’s Gospel. Recognizing the contributions of recent narrative criticism he still opts for the historical critical approach as his basic mode of interpretation. He demonstrates that the transmission of the earliest oral traditions has been careful and dependable. He offers new insights into the structural analysis of the first Gospel. He reflects on Matthew’s method of handling the fulfilled Old Testament quotations, emphasizing the Christocentric nature of the Jewish Scriptures. He provides analysis of the unique historical crucible in which the Jew/Gentile elements of this Gospel were refined.

About Matthew 14-28 (Volume 33b):
In this concluding volume of Hagner’s commentary, he reminds modern readers of the historical setting in which Matthew’s gospel was first read. He seeks to place in perspective polemical aspects of the Gospel, particularly with respect to early Judaism, so that they are not misunderstood by Christians today. Hagner also presents an analysis of Matthew’s treatment of his sources for the story of Jesus--the Gospel of Mark and the document known as Q. Includes:

  • A fresh translation of the Gospel based on the latest critical Greek text;
  • Thorough and up-to-date bibliographies of scholarship on each pericope;
  • Verse-by-verse comment providing historical and cultural insights and interacting with the most important scholarly literature.
