The Gospel of Matthew brings out treasures old and new.

Charles L. Quarles demonstrates that the Gospel of Matthew is foremost a testimony about Jesus. Each pericope centers on Jesus and reveals something about who he is, what he has done, and what his disciples should do in response. Quarles teases out Matthew’s unique theological presentation of Jesus’s identity and work. Jesus is the new and greater Moses and the new and greater David who fulfills Old Testament hopes by establishing God’s covenant and kingdom. This Gospel invites us to know and worship Jesus, who makes all things new.

–David R. Bauer, Ralph Waldo Beeson Professor of Inductive Biblical Studies and dean of the School of Biblical Interpretation, Asbury Theological Seminary

    This commentary is truly a "biblical theology" commentary, meaning that the author consistently interacts with the primary source, the text of Matthew's Gospel, itself and reasonably draws exegetical meanings and theological/practical implications out of it. Yet, at the same time, as interpreting the text, the author is informed and guided by early sources, such as Josephus, Philo, the DDS, the Mishnah, Tosefta, the Jerusalem and Babylonian Talmuds, and the Targums as well as modern secondary sources. The author's advanced scholarship will give new lights and insights to those who strive to interpret the first Gospel. Especially, readers will greatly benefit from the "Bridge" sections that connect Matthew's texts with the OT and the rest of the NT. It is also an "evangelical" commentary, meaning that the author is devoted to the message of the gospel that Jesus Christ is the only hope for the dying world. My favorite section of this commentary is its interpretation of the Olivet Discourse (Matt 24). It gave me a new light to understand how Jesus's prophecies have been/will be fulfilled.

    My journey with Christ has benefited from reading this commentary! So wonderful because it is biblical and doctrinal in its foundation and the application flows from the text. Your life and ministry will be strengthened. Everyone from the lay person to the scholar will benefit.

    I was able to review this commentary while studying under Dr. Quarles for a Matthew seminar. It is outstanding! It is helpful both academically and pastorally, referencing it week to week as I am preaching through the Gospel of Matthew. He provides the most Jewish background that I have seen in a commentary and also makes it readable and to the point. He also does a great job of connecting themes throughout the book and to the OT.
