David Garland’s commentary provides thorough guidance through Matthew’s story of Jesus, revealing the movement of the story’s plot while highlighting Matthew’s theology. The gospel writer’s intent, besides telling the story of Jesus, is to bolster faith, convince and refute, explain present historical circumstances, to exhort, and to arm for mission. This commentary concentrates on Jesus as the Messiah, His ministry to Israel, and His passion and resurrection.

Resource Experts
Garland's Reading Matthew is, as of the moment, probably the first commentary I would recommend to a serious undergraduate student or seminarian interested in learning what modern scholarship now does with Matthew.

—Interpretation, Dale C. Allison, Jr., Pittsburgh Theological Seminary

Garland’s commentary is a thorough, reliable, and eminently readable guide to Matthew’s Gospel. . . presented with exceptional clarity and frequently spiced with lively turns of phrase.

—Catholic Biblical Quarterly, F. Scott Spencer, Wingate College

    Best commentary on Matthew. Really good contextual understanding of the gospel. This is my go-to commentary on Matthew and I refer to it first prior to NICOT (also excellent), NIGTC (also excellent), Hermeneia, WBC, and most other "academic"commentaries I've looked at. Consistent with quality of analysis chapter after chapter, will stand up to requirements of PhD seminars.
