This insightful study of the first book of the New Testament is not simply a verse-by-verse commentary, but a careful study of the thematic purpose and flow of thought of Matthew. Bible students, teachers, and pastors will appreciate the historical-grammatical hermeneutic applied to the Greek text, but Greek proficiency is not required to benefit from this work. Toussaint's major contribution is developing and tracing through the Gospel the twin themes of Jesus the Messiah and God's kingdom program.
