This volume which completes the internationally acclaimed three-volume commentary on St Matthew's Gospel includes a verse-by-verse and section-by-section commentary in which all linguistic, historical, and theological issues are discussed in detail. A complete index to all three volumes is included.
'[The authors] have set a very high standard indeed, and it is doubtful whether their commentary will be seriously challenged in the very near future. The third and final volume of this magnificent commentary, like the first two volumes, will become an indispensable text for all scholars and students who work on the Gospel of Matthew.'
David C. Sim, Australian Biblical Review
'How should this massive work of scholarship be assessed? The three volumes stand as one of the major commentaries on the Gospel of Matthew in which all future interpreters of the Gospel will find a source of fruitful dialogue and helpful ideas. It is a "must have," both in libraries and in footnotes. Davies and Allison are to be thoroughly commended on the fruits of their considerable toil.'
Robert K. McIver, Seminary Studies
'The authors' meticulous and accurate scholarship, the breadth of their reading, their careful and essentially sensible opinions and judgements are the constant reactions readers should have when consulting this commentary. For any serious scholar of the Gospel of Matthew, this new ICC must be the first port of call, not only for its own exegetical treatment of Matthew, but for alerting us to a vast range of previous comment, patristic, medieval, and modern, and also to an impressively full bibliography of recent articles, monographs and studies on all aspects of this Gospel. This is no realistic substitute in English for this commentary if one is at work on the Greek text of Matthew. That the authors (and their publisher) acomplished their task of producing the three volumes in ten years is itself a prodigious feat.'
J. K. Elliott, Novum Testamentum
