Liturgical Press Suggests
Matthew wrote his Gospel from his perspective as a Jew. It is with sensitivity to this perspective that Father Harrington undertakes this commentary on the Gospel of Matthew.
After an introduction, he provides a literal translation of each section in Matthew's Gospel and explains the textual problems, philological difficulties, and other matters in the notes. He then presents a literary analysis of each text (content, form, use of sources, structure). Bibliographies direct the reader to other important modern studies.
This is a balanced, well-informed, centrist commentary, with which the reviewer usually agrees and which he can heartily recommend.
This resource is very valuable in reading and understanding the Gospel of Matthew.
