Concordia Commentary: Matthew 11:2–20:34



This commentary carefully expounds the original Greek text and theology of the book of Matthew. Dr. Gibbs employs a narrative approach that carefully attends to the literary structure of Matthew’s Gospel. He interprets the text in light of the original cultural and religious context in which Matthew wrote, as well as the audience for whom he wrote. Gibbs focuses on two themes throughout the commentary: Jesus’ identity and the people’s varied response to his identity.
