In this third volume, Luz brings his superlative analysis of Matthew's Gospel to a close. He is renowned for both his discerning exegetical insights as well as his tracing of the effects the text has had throughout history — in theological argument, art, and literature. This final section provides in-depth treatment of Jesus' final days — his entry into Jerusalem, the Passion Narrative, and post-resurrection appearances.

"... Where this commentary moves beyond what has become typical of the genre, is in its extensive, illustrated discussions of the history of interpretation of each section, in art and music as well as in exegesis and theology. Luz also offers a historical reconstruction of events behind pericopae, and a discussion of the 'meaning for today' of each. The additional material undoubtedly makes for a heavy time, but it is undoubtedly a rich resource which will appeal to a wider variety of reader than the traditional commentary. This will assuredly prove t much valued addition to scholarship on the Gospel of Matthew available in English. The translation is lucid, and enhances the usefulness of this work."
