Item Description...
Overview
In this volume, Wright explains how the many parables Jesus tells are best understood in terms of their contemporary Jewish imagery, primarily surrounding God's relationship with his chosen people and the Temple. Wright characterizes Matthew's gospel as a guide to climbing the Eiger, the "mile-high rock, looking squarely at the death of Jesus in all its stark horror, and letting its beauty and terror captivate" us for ever (p.147). On such a high mountain, we can react to our realization of sinfulness in one of two ways. Just as a drop of rain falling on a mountain in Palestine can either run down into the Dead Sea or to the Jordan, we can react with a holy sorrow like Peter did, which leads to repentance, or a bitter remorse like Judas did, which leads to despair and destruction.

Wright makes a number of interesting observations about these chapters of Matthew:
1. Throughout the story of Jesus' arrest, trial, crucifixion, and resurrection, it is the women who speak or act truly: Pilate's wife, the unnamed woman who anointed Jesus, the servant-girls who challenge Peter's concealment, the women at the cross and beside the tomb. (P. 179)

2. Elements of the Sermon on the Mount are replicated in the story of Gethsemane, the arrest, trial, death, and resurrection of Jesus.

3. The "angels" of the little children, according to Jesus, do not have to hide their eyes like the six-winged cherubim guarding God's throne, instead their faces behold God's glory directly - Wright explains that this indicates how important the little children are to God.

Publishers Description

Tom Wright's eye-opening comments on the Gospel of Matthew and what it might mean for us are combined, passage-by-passage, with his fresh translation of the Bible text. Making use of his true scholar's understanding, yet writing in an approachable and anecdotal style, Wright captures the urgency and excitement of Matthew's Gospel in a way few writers have.

Tom Wright has undertaken a tremendous task: to provide guides to all the books of the New Testament, and to include in them his own translation of the entire text. Each short passage is followed by a highly readable discussion with background information, useful explanations and suggestions, and thoughts as to how the text can be relevant to our lives today. A glossary is included at the back of the book. The series is suitable for group study, personal study, or daily devotions.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
mathew for everyone by n. t. wright  Jan 3, 2007
Dr. Wright has become the successor to Dr.William Barclay as the number one commentator on the books of the New Testament. He gives both background and understanding to every book he addresses. You will feel as if you were there!
 
Excellent Work  Apr 10, 2006
Tom Wright has given a well written and simple to read commentary that is in no way lacking in theological truth and depth. I recommend not only part 2 of Matthew, but part one and the entire Everyone Series by Tom Wright.
Oftentimes it seems that when reading the gospel it can be difficult to maintain focus and connect the parts from beginning to end and to Wright's credit, he not only does that, but does it remarkably well. He always has great insight into the meaning of the text and a good example of this is in the passage about Judas (Matthew 27:1-10) who brings the thirty pieces of silver back to the Temple (that Jesus has recently condemned) exclaiming thathe is guilty of betraying innocent blood. Wright points out that the function of the Temple was to deal with guilt, but it is either unable or no longer willing to serve its function and Judas is a case in point. Judas goes and commits suicide from there and the Temple is partly to blame. This type of insight is not an issolated event in this book, but instead you will find it insightful. Wright deals with often misunderstood texts like Matthew 24 and 25 and the book is worth purchasing just to get at the real meaning of these passages. One more point, he has done deep reflection on the meaning of the cross and resurrection accounts and you will not be disappointed in what you learn and how you are again touched by the meaning of these events. I recommend this book for Everyone.
