The Gospel of Matthew: A Socio-Rhetorical Commentary

Craig S Keener

$85.00

Paperback
This commentary on Matthew offers a unique interpretive approach that focuses on the socio-historical context of the Gospel and the nature of Matthew's exhortation to his first-century Christian audience.

^^By merging a careful study of Matthew's Gospel in relation to the social context of the ancient Mediterranean world with a detailed look at what we know of first-century Jewish-Christian relations, Craig Keener uncovers significant insights into the Gospel not found in any other Matthew commentary.

^^In addition, Keener's commentary is a useful discipleship manual for the church. His approach recaptures the full "shock effect" of Jesus' teachings in their original context and allows Matthew to make his point with greater narrative artistry. Keener also brings home the total impact of Matthew's message, including its clear portrait of Jesus and its call for discipleship, both to the Gospel's ancient readers and to believers today.

^^Thoroughly researched, the book includes a 150-page bibliography of secondary sources, and more than 150 pages of indexes.
