Front Cover
A. T. Robertson
Macmillan, 1911 - RELIGION - 294 pages
Matthew's gospel contains a good deal of text that scholars believe was derived from Mark, in addition to a portion of text Matthew shares with Luke. According to tradition, the Gospel of Matthew was written by the tax collector Matthew. Matthew writes for a Jewish-Christian audience and cites multiple verses from the Old Testament as evidence of prophecies Jesus fulfills. Matthew includes a birth narrative of Jesus along with several famous passages not found in the other gospels, such as the Sermon on the Mount. A.T. Robertson's commentary on the Gospel of Matthew includes a detailed introduction that gives an overview of the date, composition and sources of the book. In addition, in-depth explanations and descriptions follow each verse of Matthew's text.
