Dr. Weber tells us in his commentary that Matthew’s gospel serves as the historical watershed between the Testaments. It keeps a retrospective eye on the Hebrew prophecies, referring almost sixty times to them, while looking forward to the Messiah’s ministry, the building of His church, and the future kingdom. Matthew, a Jew, wrote to a Jewish audience to prove that Jesus, the carpenter from Nazareth, was the promised Messiah-King. This detailed, comprehensive gospel is given similar treatment in Weber’s commentary.
