Summary

This classic Eastern Orthodox commentary on the Gospel of Matthew was written in about the year 1100 A.D. by Theophylact of Bulgaria, a brilliant and saintly Byzantine churchman. Blessed Theophylact distills the teaching of the early Church Fathers, especially St. John Chrysostom, in language that is profound, powerful, and direct. His commentary has remained a primary text on New Testament interpretation throughout the Christian East. Translated from the original Greek text.

Excellent. Enriching. Nourishing.

I was very blessed by this book. Certainly one to listen to multiple times. Glory to Jesus Christ.

Brilliant, except...

It actually appears to accuse the Mother of God of vain glory in the passage where the Mother and step brothers of Jesus send Him a message that they wish to speak to Him! I hope I am completely wrong, please correct me if I am. Truly I have no wish to be right about such a thing. The narrator did excellent work

There you have it, a thousand years new

Concise and terse sentences, absolute authority and persuasiveness. It says so much with so little- a stark contrast to mainline protestant commentaries which say so little with so unnecessarily much.
I resisted this recording for a long time-indeed what could it have to offer being written so long ago while there are an abundance of Gospel commentaries available? Well, apparently almost every single theological question I formulated during bible study classes and sunday liturgies are answered here. To say something is as relevant today as it was a thousand years ago is a cliche, but in this case it is true. The narrator does an excellent job with his calm seemingly monotonous reading, a book like this has a kind of sanctity that any kind of emotional reading would ruin.

Excellent doesn't describe it entirely.

I learned a lot about what the Bible says in greater context, which is a huge benefit.
