When the biblical canon was solidified in the fourth century, Matthew was the most popular and widely-used gospel for many reasons. In the Western church, reasons include the special role it assigned to Peter in relationship to the community of Christ. This gospel was also popular because it begins with a genealogy of Jesus. The gospel of Matthew also contains a more detailed resurrection account than is found in the Gospel of Mark. Ben Witherington III is a renowned author of more than thirty books on the New Testament. In this commentary, he describes the fullness of the Christian life for those who study and obey the teachings of Jesus in the book of Matthew. As with each volume in this series, Witherington’s groundbreaking new commentary connects the insights of biblical scholarship to a practical exploration of the Christian life.
