The Gospel According to Matthew opens the New Testament by introducing Jesus Christ, the King who came to fulfill Old Testament promises and prophecies. Those who embraced Jesus misunderstood His Kingship, and those who rejected Him crucified Him for claiming to be the King of the Jews and the Son of God. In the second half of the study, Sellers Crain shows that Jesus' claims were vindicated in His victory over sin and death.
"The Christian should be a persistent student of the Gospels, striving to grow into the image of Christ. Sellers Crain and David Stewart have been of invaluable assistance to all of us by providing this readable and thorough commentary. Whoever studies through it will be given a life-changing picture of Jesus. This work will take its place alongside other great commentaries on Matthew by McGarvey, Boles, and Lewis."
