The Gospel of Matthew brings out treasures old and new.
Charles L. Quarles demonstrates that the Gospel of Matthew is foremost a testimony about Jesus. Each pericope centers on Jesus and reveals something about who he is, what he has done, and what his disciples should do in response. Quarles teases out Matthew's unique theological presentation of Jesus's identity and work. Jesus is the new and greater Moses and the new and greater David who fulfills Old Testament hopes by establishing God's covenant and kingdom. This Gospel invites us to know and worship Jesus, who makes all things new.
The Evangelical Biblical Theology Commentary (EBTC) series locates each biblical book within redemptive history and illuminates its unique theological contributions. All EBTC volumes feature informed exegetical treatment of the biblical book and thorough discussion of its most important theological themes in relation to the canon--all in a style that is useful and accessible to students of Scripture.
Charles L. Quarles is research professor of New Testament and biblical theology and Charles Page Chair of Biblical Theology at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. He is author of A Theology of Matthew: Jesus Revealed as Deliverer, King, and Incarnate Creator, and Matthew (Exegetical Guide to the Greek New Testament).
