Item Description...
Concordia Commentary: A Theological Exposition of Sacred Scripture is written to enable pastors and teachers of the Word to proclaim the Gospel with greater insight, clarity, and faithfulness to the divine intent of the biblical text. This landmark work will cover all the canonical books of the Old and New Testaments, interpreting Scripture as a harmonious unity centered in the person and work of Jesus Christ. Every passage bears witness to the Good News that God has reconciled the world to Himself through our Lord's life, death, and resurrection. The commentary fully affirms the divine inspiration, inerrancy, and authority of Scripture as it emphasizes "that which promotes Christ" in each pericope. Authors are sensitive to the rich treasury of language, imagery, and themes found throughout Scripture, including such dialectics as Law and Gospel, sin and grace, death and new life, folly and wisdom, this fallen world and the new creation in Christ. Careful attention is given to the original Hebrew, Aramaic, or Greek. Further light is shed on the text from archaeology, history, and extrabiblical literature. Finally, Scripture's message is applied to the ongoing life of the church in terms of ministry, worship, proclamation of the Word, Baptism, the Lord's Supper, confession of the faith-all in joyful anticipation of the life of the world to come. Matthew's Gospel presents Jesus of Nazareth as the Christ long promised in the Old Testament. To interpret it, author Jeffrey Gibbs employs a narrative approach that examines the literary structure of Matthew's unfolding message and interprets individual texts with a careful eye to their relationship to that overall structure. Gibbs expounds the Gospel in light of the original context and audience for whom Matthew wrote. The themes that have received particular emphasis include: *Jesus' mission to save His people from their sins *The reign of God in Jesus *The Son of God's vicarious role as substitute for Israel and for us *Jesus' fulfillment of the Old Testament *Jesus' ministry of mighty word (preaching, calling disciples, teaching) and mighty deed (healing the sick, exorcizing, raising the dead) *How God's grace in Jesus now comes to us through Word and Sacrament; *Eschatology-that the end times have begun already with Jesus' ministry and the Christian lives with joyful hope in the promises yet to be fulfilled on the Last Day.

Valuable Commentary on First Gospel  Dec 6, 2006
This is not only a fine contribution to the commentaries available on Matthew, but also a fine example of what a good commentary should do: present the survey of commentary options, then explain why this position is presented as such.

Gibbs does an excellent job at both. Especially refreshing is his contending for his position without being contentious, e.g. this exerpt of his reasoning about Markan vs. Matthewan priority: "At any rate, it is important to emphasize both that Markan priority is clearly the majority view and that one can hold firmly to a high view of Scripture's inspiration and inerrancy while also being convinced of Markan priority. There is nothing intrinsically objectionable, theologically or confessionally speaking, about Markan priority in and of itself."

Gibbs shows himself cognizant of the scholarly literature about his subject, and interacts with it in a very precise, yet intelligent position. He states his presuppositions well, and comes at this exegetical task from a confessional Lutheran position.

He argues for Matthewan priority due to his rejection of the popular "direct literary usage or dependency" theory. One can see this further illuminated in Richard Baukham's fine new work: Jesus and The Eyewitnesses. He further asserts that this is narrative intended for a broad audience to be used in church emphasizing the breaking into this world of the end-time reign of God in historical deeds of Jesus Christ. To show but one example of his fine presentation manner this important discussion of who are poor in 5:3 taking clues from 11:5 and related texts "To be 'spiritually poor' then, is equivalent to being 'spiritually destitute, without resource, without what one needs in the spiritual realm. 'Those who are 'poor in spirit' must have thier spiritual needs provided by Another. They are, in a phrase, like sheep who are lost and distressed (9:36; 10:6) or like sinners who need to be called and forgiven (9:9-13)."

Although one in reading this fine commentary looks forward to Gibbs complete treatment of this Gospel, one quickly finds much to occupy his attention in these first eleven chapters. For it is filled with many contoversial and vital texts, to sample only a few that caught this reviewer's attention: of course the Beatitudes, the Magi, Baptism and Temptation, Seek First His Kingdom (Ch.6) and infamous "judge not lest you be judged" (Ch. 7) and especially fine expose on Divorce section of 6:31ff.

This is truly a fine aid with Matthew's Gospel to all who approach it with open mind, both Lutheran and non-Lutheran alike. Gibbs does not want either to gloss quickly over the issues, but rather to examine evidence as it exists, and intelligently ponder the historical-grammatical setting. He is astute to analyze all the various options and select ones that fit with Scriptural evidence best.

Well documented.
