Excellent Commentary on Matthew 9. Januar 2014
Von Michael C. Boling - Veröffentlicht auf

Despite being a long time fan of Michael Card as a musician, I was completely unaware that he had written a series of commentaries on the Gospels. When attending a Christmas concert this past year where he performed with another perennial favorite artist of mine named Phil Keaggy, I happened to wander by the table where the artists were selling CDs, hoping to pick up some music I did not have. It was then I discovered the Biblical Imagination Series by Michael Card of which his book Matthew: The Gospel of Identity is a part.

What exactly is this Biblical Imagination Series of commentaries all about? Matthew Card addresses his perspective of a biblical concept of imagination, noting in the preface to this commentary on Matthew the following statement:

“On one side are those who study Scripture with their minds. They engage intellectually, puzzling over the text as if it were only a cipher to be solved. They tend to gravitate toward theology. They revel in being “right.” On the other side are those who engage the Bible predominantly with the heart. They lean toward the emotional, even mystical understanding of the Scripture. Rather than theological, I would describe them as devotional in their approach. Neither approach is wrong, but both are incomplete. God has given us hearts with which to feel and minds for reasoning. He longs to recapture them both with the truth of the Word.”

It is the recapturing of the imagination and the refocusing of the mind and heart to a thorough and complete studying of God’s word that is behind the concept of the Biblical Imagination Series.

As I began to read through Card’s commentary on Matthew, I was immediately struck by the simplistic profundity by which he engages Scripture. Keep in mind this series of commentaries is not scholarly in nature yet it is scholarly in its depth of thought. This means that Card exegetes Scripture with a view to the layman without sacrificing when needed the engagement of what could be termed more scholarly material.

An example is his discussion of the background of the area known as Galilee, noting important geographical matters that impact the story, issues that many may overlook such as the size of the Sea of Galilee and the rocky shores that surround this lake. While avoiding a deep dive into all the various geographical or historical elements that comprise more lengthy style commentaries, Card provides the reader with valuable information that relates to the message at hand in a manner that is informative yet does not get overly bogged down in minutia.

Card walks through the entire book of Matthew one chapter at a time, devoting a chapter in this book to the events that Matthew records in his gospel. The commentary is written in such a way that the reader can work through several chapters at one time or they can journey through the Gospel of Matthew slowly. Either approach will work as again the text is written in such a manner as to not be too overwhelmingly scholarly while still providing much food for thought. Card’s exegesis is theologically sound and the passion for the Word of God that for many years was reflected in his music is clearly evident throughout this commentary. I was really struck by the attention paid by Card to how Jesus interacted with those around him and why that matters. Additionally, I appreciated the manner in which Card elucidated why Matthew included certain elements of Jesus’ life in his Gospel, points which may have received a passing submission or even a longer look by the other gospel writers. Understanding the author, in this case the Gospel of Matthew is important for understanding why some things are included and Card does an excellent job of outlining those important issues.

At the end of this commentary, Card provides several short yet helpful appendices that help the reader engage in more detail some aspects of Matthew’s Gospel. Appendix A lists the five major blocks of Jesus’ teaching found in Matthew, Appendix B lists content found only in Matthew’s gospel, Appendix C provides a very interesting look into the flogging endured by Jesus in the Synagogue, Appendix D is a discussion of the historical notation made by the Jewish historian Josephus regarding John the Baptist, and Appendix E provides a quick but helpful examination of what was considered to be work on the Sabbath.

I highly recommend Michael Card’s commentary, Matthew: The Gospel of Identity for scholars and layman alike. Additionally, I recommend the accompanying music CD called Matthew: The Penultimate Question. As with all of Michael Card’s music, this CD is biblically sound and musically excellent, providing a wonderful supplement to the commentary. Both are well worth your time. I greatly look forward to reading the other books in this series and listening to the other CDs that Michael Card has produced to go along with the other books in his wonderful Biblical Imagination Series.

Michael Card moving into more theological emphasis 28. Juli 2013
Von Fred Woodland - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
In May 2012 I attended MC Biblical Imaginations seminar on the Gospel of Mark. This led me to the series of the gospel commentaries. I usually don't write in books, but I have underlined and read the scriptures referenced in the books and wrote in my Bible. I have a hard time reading so gleaning from MC has brought me years of study and deepened my faith.

Fresh Take on the Gospel of Matthew 6. Januar 2014
Von ElaineS - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The author presents a new look at Matthew in this third in the Biblical Imagination series. Studying scripture intellectually or emotionally is incomplete; imagination bridges the gap and provides a complete picture. Matthew uses two themes: Galilee in Crisis and the question of identity. Written for Christians who didn't yet know they were Christians, Matthew records the sayings of Jesus as well as the parables in five "blocks" of scripture, revealing the identity of Jesus so his followers could understand who they were.
