      The three volume set by Davies & Allison is good to have and use, but it
      is terribly expensive. I would say, make sure your local library has the
      set. Let them spend that kind of money for you. As long as we are throwing
      money around, don't forget the massive commentary by Hans Dieter Betz on the
      Sermon on the Mount in the Hermeneia Series.
      Sometimes the smaller, older commentaries have interesting bits at much
      more affordable prices. Such as, JC Fenton, Saint Matthew, Pelican NT
      Commentaries. More recent is the one volume Church and Community in Crisis
      by J Andrew Overman.
      Finally, The Challenge of Jesus' Parables edited by Richard Longnecker,
      Eerdmans Publ, 1999 is an excellent resource.
