To craft informed sermons, pastors scour commentaries that often deal more with minutia than the main point—or they turn to devotional commentaries which may contain exegetical weaknesses. The Teach the Text Commentary series bridges this gap by utilizing the best of biblical scholarship and providing the information pastors need to communicate the text effectively.
Keeping the discussion of each carefully selected preaching unit to six pages of focused commentary, this analysis of the book of Matthew gives pastors the big idea and key themes of the passage, ideas for teaching and illustrating the text, and full-color illustrations, maps, and photos.
Jeanine K. Brown focuses on the cultural setting of Matthew’s theological biography of Jesus. Her careful interpretation and practical application focus on Jesus’ identity as the Messiah and the empowering presence of Jesus’ Spirit to enable his people to carry on his mission.
