The Explanation by Blessed Theophylact, Archbishop of Ochrid and Bulgaria, of the Holy Gospel According to Saint Matthew

   
Translated from the original Greek by Fr. Christopher Stade

Volume 1 of Blessed Theophylact’s Explanation of the New Testament

“For nine hundred years one of the most beloved and widely read Scriptural commentaries among the Orthodox people of Byzantium, Serbia, Bulgaria, Russia, and Greece has been Bl. Theophylact’s Explanation of the Holy Gospel and Epistles. The comprehensiveness, the patristic authority, and, at the same time, the simplicity of this great work makes it of value to any Christian seeking to understand the meaning of the Gospel preaching.”
