Paideia Commentaries on the New Testament: Matthew


Baker Academic 2010

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


In this fresh commentary, leading New Testament scholar Charles Talbert examines cultural context and theological meaning in Matthew. This commentary approaches each text in its final, canonical form, proceeding by sense units rather than word-by-word or verse-by-verse. Each sense unit is explored in three sections: introductory matters, tracing the train of thought, and key hermeneutical and theological questions. Graduate and seminary students, professors, and pastors will benefit from this readable commentary, as will theological libraries.

Logos Bible Software dramatically improves the value of this resource by enabling you to find what you are looking for with lightning speed and unbelievable precision. As you are reading the Matthew, you can easily search and access topics or Scripture references you come across, making sermon preparation or Bible study easier than ever.

Key Features

Praise for the Print Edition

Most commentaries rewrite earlier commentaries. The better ones, to the contrary, often go their own way. Talbert’s work happily is of the latter type. It regularly offers fresh readings and new comparative materials, especially from Greco-Roman sources. This is not a tired rehashing but a welcome contribution.

Dale C. Allison Jr., Errett M. Grable Professor of New Testament Exegesis and Early Christianity, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary

In this stimulating reading of Matthew’s Gospel, Charles Talbert draws on his extensive learning to attend insightfully to various cultural, literary, and theological dimensions of the Gospel. Students will find his clear prose, insightful discussion, and theological reflections especially valuable. I will be adding this commentary to course bibliographies.

Warren Carter, professor of New Testament, Brite Divinity School, Texas Christian University
