Select ancient Christian writings on the Gospel of Matthew. The Church’s Bible series brings the rich classical tradition of biblical interpretation to life, illuminating Scripture as it was understood during the first millennium of Christian history. Compiled, translated, and edited by leading scholars, these volumes lead contemporary clergy, Bible teachers, and students of Scripture into the inexhaustible spiritual and theological world of the early church.
This volume on Matthew contains select freshly translated excerpts from patristic commentators including John Chrysostom, Irenaeus of Lyons, Origen, Tertullian, and Augustine. Ranging chronologically from the second century to the seventh century, these selections splendidly display a neglected part of the church’s interpretive tradition on Matthew.
