“The disciplined structure of Matthew’s work, alternating ‘narrative’ with ‘discourse’, has brought two divergent streams into harmony: telling the story of Jesus’ life and ministry with color and vitality and hearing the Master teach his disciples the essence of a new gospel.” (from the preface)
Herb Kopp, a long time pastor, states in his preface that the Gospel of Matthew has been his constant companion for more than two decades. He brings some very practical insights into these teachings of Jesus; insights for those who want to live by the ethics of our Lord, and in the calling of Christ Jesus himself.
