    • Notes: The massive Davies/Allison commentary has been abridged by Allison (2004) for those who wish to skip the encyclopedic exegetical detail and read their conclusions. France directs readers of his commentary to his volume Matthew: Evangelist and Teacher for introductory matters (Zondervan, 1989). Also, I am surprised Chamblin’s 2-vol. commentary has not received more attention (Mentor, 2010, about 1600pp.).
