William Barclay was an excellent interpreter of the teachings of Jesus. He translated the New Testament from its early Greek format. His method was to endeavor to convey the meaning of Jesus' teachings, rather than to ensure his translations conformed to the doctrine of a given Christian sect. For this reason, I feel they are the most useful translations of the New Testament gospels. As with his several other books on the New Testament, this Gospel of Matthew is well worth reading. Barclay's two ...more

The Gospel of Matthew Volume Two by William Barclay is a very informative and comprehensive study on the gospel according to Saint Matthew. This second volume gives vivid insights to this sacred book of Saint Matthew and covers chapters eleven through twenty-eight. Dr Barclay takes a courageous stand on the teaching of Matthew and presents the 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’ parables, m ...more

I really enjoy Barclay's commentary.

He is very easy to read and I found myself utterly fascinated by the Uist rial perspective in particular that he brought to such a familiar Gospel. His own faith comes shining through, as well. While I ...more

Quite enjoyable. Again, read in tandem with Michael Card's new series. Two different, but complementary, approaches.

William Barclay's commentaries are well-written and scholarly. Although I frequently disagree with his perspective on some of the verses in Matthew (he occasionally seems to read more into them than I feel would be a normal "leap" of conjecture), he is certainly my favorite commentator. He incorporates good linguistic knowledge with good historical knowledge, which helps in the understanding of Matthew.

Barclay's observations on the mock trial and crucifixion of Jesus are some of the best I've ever encountered.

“Jesus insisted that the greatest ritual service is the service of human need. It is an odd thing to think that, with the possible exception of that day in the synagogue at Nazareth, we have no evidence that Jesus ever conducted a ‘church’ service in all his life on earth, but we have abundant evidence that he fed the hungry and comforted the sad and cared for the sick. Christian service is not the service of any liturgy or ritual; it is the service of human need. Christian service is not monastic retreat; it is involvement in all the tragedies and problems and demands of the human situation.” 0 likes
