Translated by Thomas P. Scheck

Volume 117 of The Fathers of the Church: A New Translation

“Jerome dictated his Commentary on Matthew over the course of two weeks. ...In spite of the brevity of Jerome’s historical exposition, the commentary is an eminent work. As Simonetti has observed, the distinguishing feature of Jerome’s exegesis is his ability to balance the requirements of both literal and spiritual interpretation.... While it is to be regretted that Jerome did not write at greater length on Matthew’s Gospel, what he has set down is dense, Spirit-filled exegesis that draws on all canonical Scripture and is governed by the Church’s Trinitarian Rule of Faith.”
