'Jesus took bread and blessed it, and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, and said' "Take, eat, this is my body".' Matthew is written in a rhythmical and often poetic prose. It is the gospel best suited for public reading, and, as a result, it is probably the best known: It tells the story of Christ's infancy; the Sermon on the Mount; the parables of the wheat and the tares; the sheep and the goats; and the Resurrection.

William Barclay's insightful commentary brings freshness to these familiar passages and uncovers the vivid depth of meaning often lost in translation and repetition. In this second volume examining the Gospel of Matthew, discover again the miracles, the parables and the Resurrection of Jesus.

William Barclay's world-renowned down-to-earth New Daily Study Bible commentaries - including his own translations of the New Testament texts - have inspired millions of people across the generations 'to know better their Bible, their God and their Saviour'.

William Barclay

1907 - 1978

William Barclay once said that his life's aim was to help new generations "to know better their Bible, their God and their Saviour".

The words and works of this great communicator of the Gospel inspire and sustain the Christian faith of thousands all over the world.

Born in Wick, Barclay studied at the University of Glasgow before becoming a Church of Scotland minister in 1933. He returned to the university as a lecturer in New Testament language and literature in 1947 and was appointed Professor of Divinity and Biblical Criticism in 1963.

'Most devotional writing sits too light on the historical and critical facts. Barclay was one of the few who could at the same time distil the essence of scholarly findings with nourishment for the Christian way.' -- Richard Harries 'William Barclay writes with such an intelligent clarity and generosity.' -- Nick Baines
