St. Jerome’s Commentary on Matthew

For some reason the translators of the Ante-Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers series overlooked many biblical commentaries of the early church. However, patristic scholars over the past few decades have started to fill this gap. A first ever English translation of Jerome’s (d. 420) Commentary on Matthew has recently been published by The Catholic University of America Press in their Fathers of the Church series. If you want to see how a very early commentator of the church interpreted the Gospel of Matthew, this is a great addition for your library. Since I translated many of Jerome’s comments on Matthew 24 in The Early Church and the End of the World, I am curious to see how our translations compare.
