Book Description

This is the fourth and final volume of Fr. Tarazi's New Testament introduction tetralogy. In addition to his exegesis on the Book of Matthew, Fr. Tarazi discusses the formation of the New Testament canon and the Gospel of Matthew, which he argues was intentionally written as the closing book within this canon. "Fr. Tarazi's application of his investigative, creative, kerygmatic, canon exegesis has generated a manuscript filled with unique interpretations and bold positions on the Gospel according to Matthew and on the New Testament canon." John Fotopoulos, Ph.D. Associate Professor of New Testament and Early Christian Literature Saint Mary's College, Notre Dame "Matthew and the Canon is the crowning achievement of the New Testament series...As in the preceding volumes, Tarazi does not offer a conventional introduction to Matthew, but rather comments on each pericope with precise exegetical notes. By doing this, Tarazi allows his reader to be introduced to the Gospel text, rather than to the latest theories of modern criticism." Daniel Alberto Ayuch Associate Professor of New Testament University of Balamand The V. Rev. Dr. Paul Nadim Tarazi is Professor of Biblical Studies and Languages at St. Vladimir's Orthodox Theological Seminary. He is the author of three previously published volumes to the New Testament introduction series, a three-volume introduction to the Old Testament, Galatians: A Commentary, and 1 Thessalonians: A Commentary. His audio bible commentaries on the books of the New Testament are available online through The Orthodox Center for the Advancement of Biblical Studies (OCABS).

3.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Effort, but Uncomfortable Direction 17 Nov. 2012
By Theophilus - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I commend Fr. Paul Nadim Tarazi for another scholarly volume bringing together an Orthodox scholar's perspective and critical analysis of the Holy Scripture. Unfortunately, reading this volume oftentimes feels as though Fr. Paul is struggling to present new and innovative theories on this Gospel rather than simply presenting a workable analysis of the text. As I read this volume, I feel I learned more about Fr. Paul's opinion/theories than the Gospel itself. Perhaps that is the point, but I really did not expect such a point when I purchased this volume.

Overall, it is a worthwhile effort, but for someone who simply wants to learn more about the Gospel according to St. Matthew, I would look elsewhere.
