Through the use of graphic representations of translations, succinct summaries of main ideas, exegetical outlines, and other features, Osborne presents the Gospel of Matthew with precision and accuracy. Because of this series' focus on the textual structure of the scriptures, readers will better understand the literary elements of Matthew, comprehend the author's revolutionary goals, and ultimately discovering their vital claims upon the church and the spread of the gospel message today.

While primarily designed for those with a basic knowledge of biblical Greek, all who strive to understand and teach the New Testament will find this series beneficial. The general editor for this enterprising series is Clinton E. Arnold

  • Translation in Graphic Layout: Presents a translation through a diagram that helps readers visualize the flow of thought within the text
  • Exegetical Outline: Gives the overall structure of the passage
  • Explanation of the Text: Provides interpretive insights into the background and meaning of the text
  • Theology in Application: Discusses how the message of the text fits within the book itself and in a broader biblical-theological context, suggesting applications for the church today

Write Your Own Review
Comprehensive study commentary of Matthew
4 stars By Gary Ware, Dec 16 2010
Review copy supplied by Zondervan Publishers. 

General Observations.
1154 oversized pages, hard cover, well bound, lies open when read. Generous print size, easy to read, utilises footnotes, not endnotes.
Formatting.
The ZECNT series has adopted a format by which each section of Scripture is considered in the following seven components: Literary Context; Main Idea; Translation and Graphical Layout; Structure; Exegetical Outline; Explanation of the Text; and Theology in Application. The commentary is based on the Greek text. Full English (TNIV) and Greek texts are reproduced in the body of the commentary, keeping focus on the Scripture.
Content.
Each section of the text is dealt with in its own chapter, 122 in all, where a balance between considerations of wider canonical and theological context and careful examination of the passage under consideration is struck.
Conclusion.
It is a volume that brings scholarship to bear in a way that encourages the reader to study the text and not simply mine the book for Osborne?s own (worthwhile and valuable) observations. It brings a focus to each passage of Scripture, while also allowing each passage to be appreciated in its wider canonical context.
The volume also provides a fine model for personal biblical scholarship.
