It's a great book....The Kindle version however didn't bother to include the preface and introduction!!!!!!! Guess what the first quiz is over in class?
Yep, the intro and preface. Thanks Kindle...
This is the best Matthew commentary I've looked in. I've read parts of Blomberg, France, Calvin, and Henry. This one is more detailed than Calvin and Henry, and these are the kind he thought were the best in his day.
I must admit that I thought that this book was out of print. I read Broadus' commentary on the book of Matthew in 1983 when attending Bible college. Since that time I have often borrowed a copy of the book from others for reference sake. This book details the first book of the New Testament with amazing scholarship. Broadus digs deep into the 1st Century A.D. and brings out the manners and customs of the day and uses the information to bring color to the Biblical story of Jesus Christ's life as recorded by Matthew. It also cross references to the other three gospels and puts together a detailed and complete record of Christ's journey on earth.
I like the book because it takes the subject seriously and seeks to examine the very words in the Book of Matthew -- not just paraphrase it as I have often seen other authors do. It is not a novel -- it is a reference guide must for anyone serious about knowing the gospel according to Matthew.
I have already commented on the digitally remastered version of this commentary and will not repeat my remarks here. The two stars rating is purely related to the fact that the Kindle version has no active table of content. It will be very cumbersome to go through a 600 pages commentary (in hard copy) without a proper TOC.
