In Matthew 1–14: A Handbook on the Greek Text Wesley Olmstead provides a foundational analysis of the Greek text of Matthew 1–14. The analysis is distinguished by the detailed yet comprehensive attention paid to the text. Olmstead’s analysis is a convenient pedagogical and reference tool that explains the form and syntax of the biblical text, offers guidance for deciding between competing semantic analyses, engages important text-critical debates, and addresses questions relating to the Greek text that are frequently overlooked or ignored by standard commentaries. Beyond serving as a succinct and accessible analytic key, Matthew 1–14 also reflects the most up-to-date advances in scholarship on Greek grammar and linguistics. This handbook proves itself an indispensable tool for anyone committed to a deep reading of the biblical text.

"The Baylor Handbook on the Greek New Testament series has been a welcome and distinctive addition to an otherwise crowded field of biblical commentaries. Whereas some volumes have merely identified grammatical forms and others have strayed noticeably beyond grammar, Olmstead steers a helpful middle course. He does not attempt to multiply categories of meaning for words that is actually determined by their context but does identify all standard forms. He makes judicious decisions on the vexed issues related to verbal aspect and deponency. He regularly gives reasons for those views that might be disputed rather than simply making assertions. This is a very welcome addition to an important series."

—Craig L. Blomberg, Distinguished Professor of New Testament, Denver Seminary
