“This is biblical theology at its finest. Dr. Quarles is closely tethered to the text, attentive to allusions from the Old Testament, and unrelenting in his emphasis on the one–of–a–kind glory of Jesus as God. I commend this book very highly. It will stoke a fire in your heart and create a burning desire to herald the glories of Jesus from the treasures, new and old, in the gospel of Matthew.”See All

Books at a Glance
Who is Jesus? Why should we worship him?
This book answers these questions by surveying Matthew’s primary theological themes and how they interconnect with the rest of the Bible. Quarles focuses on Matthew’s portrait of Jesus as the Savior of sinners, the King of God’s people, the founder of a new Israel, and the incarnation of the Creator.
