J. C. Ryle’s
Expository Thoughts on the Gospel of Matthew

J. C. Ryle 

REV. J. C. RYLE, 1816–1900AD

“The plan I have adopted in drawing up the “Expository Thoughts” is as follows: I have divided the sacred text into sections or passages, averaging about twelve verses in each. I have then supplied a continuous series of short, plain “Expositions” of each of these passages. In each Exposition I have generally begun by stating as briefly as possible the main scope and purpose of the passage under consideration. I have then selected two, three, or four prominent points in the passage, singled them out from the rest, dwelt exclusively on them, and endeavoured to enforce them plainly and vigorously on the reader’s attention. The points selected will be found to be sometimes doctrinal, and sometimes practical. The only rule in selection has been to seize on the really leading points of the passage.” [extract from his Preface.]
