The Gospel of Matthew, Vol. 1: The King and His Kingdom


Baker 2001

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


This two-volume expositional and inspirational commentary on the book of Matthew integrates rigorous scholarship and clear communication. It will inform and help a wide range of readers--from serious Bible students to interested laypersons--understand and apply the truths found in the text. Both volumes deal with Matthew's emphasis on Jesus as the Messiah or King of Israel.

Topics in volume one, The King and His Kingdom, include:

  • The Coming of the King (1:1-4:25)
  • The Sermon on the Mount (5:1-7:29)
  • The Power of the Kingdom (8:1-10:42)
  • Is Jesus Really God's King? (11:1-12:50)
  • The Parables of the Kingdom (13:1-58)
  • The Withdrawal of the King (14:1-17:27)

Boice not only explains the meaning of the text verse by verse and section by section, he also relates the text's concerns to the world in which we live, the life of the church, and the realities of the Christian life.

Praise for the Print Edition

Dr. Boice's commentary series is a treasure for the church and for her pastors. No expository preacher can afford to be without it.

—R. C. Sproul
