Commentaries On The Sermon on the Mount

I have started a series on Sunday mornings at Cornerstone that I am calling Kingdom Living, Here & Now. It is a series based on the Sermon on the Mount from Matthew 5-7. As I preach through books or sections of the Scriptures, I always collect many commentaries that I use to help me. I thought I would make a list of the books that I am using to help me in my study. I have a few others on order, but here are some of my favorites so far:

I love this book! I have used it often. Lloyd-Jones is so exhaustive, if feels like he deals with all aspects of this portion of Scripture. It is a series of his sermons that he preached on this subject.

This is part of a New Testament series by Hendriksen & Kistemaker. I would highly recommend the entire series. Interestingly enough, I also love reading John MacArthur's New Testament commentary on Matthew. It does seem as I read this that MacArthur certainly gained a lot of information from Hendriksen. Enough said.

This is a new one that I just received and have enjoyed so far. I have particularly enjoyed Leon Morris' other commentaries and I have grown to love all the Pillar New Testament Commentary Series, so it seemed like this would be a good fit. It has not disappointed yet.

This commentary by Doriani is also new to me. He has a very easy writing style and has some great insights and applications that have made me stop and think.

There are several more that I am using. Here is a list of the rest of the commentaries that have helped me and I continue to learn from:

  • An Exposition of the Sermon on the Mount by Arthur W. Pink
  • The Gospel of Matthew by James Montgomery Boice
  • The Expositor's Bible Commentary: Matthew by D. A. Carson
  • Matthew: A Mentor Commentary by Knox Chamblin
  • The Gospel of Matthew (NICNT) by R.T. France
