Matthew: A Commentary for Bible Students is part of a commentary series that interprets the books of the Bible from a Wesleyan perspective. The commentary explores Matthew's vision of discipleship and how to live the Christian life when one's traditional moorings are under attack. Following the New International Version, each book of the Bible is explained paragraph by paragraph, illuminating the key concepts of each passage and how they relate to our life and times today. At the same time, the authors slow down often to examine particular details and alternative understandings that are important for understanding the bigger picture. This series offers insight into the Scripture that brings greater understanding of what the Bible says, its significance for our lives today, and further transformation into the images of Christ.
