As part of my Moral Theology course, I was reintroduced to the Gospel of Matthew. The writing is not difficult to understand, however the parables can be tricky.

The Gospel of Matthew Volume One by William Barclay is a very informative and comprehensive study on the gospel according to Saint Matthew. This first volume gives vivid insights to this sacred book of Saint Matthew and covers its first ten chapters. Dr Barclay takes a courageous stand on the teaching of Matthew and presents the birth and teaching of Jesus in a unique way. In truth, each chapter is carefully explained in a verse by verse format, and great care is given to Jesus’ birth, baptism, ...more

William Barclay was an excellent interpreter of the teachings of Jesus. He translated the New Testament from its early Greek format.

I'm tracking my 'One Year Bible' reading with Barclay's NT commentaries this year. What a wealth of insight from his intensive knowledge of ancient texts and cultural studies!

My priest suggested that I start with the book of Matthew as an introduction to the New Testament. Volume 1 goes through the first 10 chapters. Excellent insight into the scriptures.
As I read/prayed through Matthew, this commentary was helpful for my understanding and inspiration for prayer.
