I’m preparing a sermon on the gospel reading for the 24th Sunday after Trinity, Matthew 9:18-26. It is a rich passage, and one I have taught on before. In a Facebook comment, I remarked that Frederick Dale Bruner’s Matthew: the Christbook was the best commentary I had seen on this gospel.
Little did I know what the Amazon.com reviews were like. Wow! What an impression Bruner has made. And from what I’ve read on just this passage, I think I agree with them.
