2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By University student on 25 May 2003
Format: Hardcover
I'm studying the Matthean and Lukan birth narratives as part of my university course and this text, along with Raymond Brown's Birth of the Messiah, is excellent.
The translation is very good and pitched at just the right level: you don't have the trouble of having forgotten the beginning of the sentence by the end, as is too often the case with wordy academic prose! The book has obviously been extremely thoroughly researched, but Luz still manages to convey his theories in a straightforward manner.
The first section, which outlines the issues of Matthew's sources, his community and his place in Jewish Christianity is fairly succinct and very interesting. The commentary itself is a gem and I'd recommend it to anyone with a passing interest in the New Testament; in fact, I'd recommend it to anyone at all to give them an insight into the richness of the Gospels from a historical-literary point of view. I heartily agree with all the plaudits it's received.

Hermeneia Commentary on Matthew Is One of the Best 18 Dec. 2012
By David Procter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Few have offered a more thorough commentary on the first gospel than Dr. Ulrich Luz. It is clearly a labor of love over many years. The layout of the Hermeneia series is outstanding, but the content of some of the early volumes on some books was frankly disappointing and less than helpful to the pastor and teacher. But Dr. Ulrich offers us a treasure of thoughtful exposition based on a careful study of the Greek text, the historical background, the relevant literature, the contribution of different traditions (ancient church, Catholic, Protestant, modern), and his special attention to the history of interpretation. While not agreeing with every assumption or conclusion of the author, the commentary does not disappoint. It will add real value to anyone undertaking a serious study of Matthew's gospel. The three volumes are expensive, but I judge them to be worth every penny. Davies and Allison in the ICC is similar in scope; Morris, France, and Blomberg provide a more condensed exegetical approach with helpful application. Schnackenburg is another continental writer on Matthew worth reading in conjunction with Ulrich.

Hermeneia Commentaries are well known for their detail and scholarship. It's why I use them for my work as an every Sunday preacher.

A valuable resource for a working preacher. A bit more detail than I needed, even the details have been useful in developing sermonms.
