LEARNING ABOUT THE GOSPEL OF MATTHEW
For many of us, our major experience of the Gospels comes from the Sunday liturgies. We hear of the life and ministry of Jesus in the Gospel along with supporting scripture passages, and then we hear a homily, giving us some thoughts on how what we have heard can influence our lives every day. While this is good, our understanding and appreciation of what we hear can be significantly enhanced if we know more about the Gospel as a whole.
Last year, we explored the Gospel of Luke in some detail in preparation for this liturgical year. Next year, we will use the Gospel of Matthew as the predominant source of our Sunday Gospel readings. With this in mind, we have prepared a short (four week) course on Matthew’s Gospel which will be offered during August.
The tentative dates are:
Come and increase your appreciation and knowledge of Matthew’s picture of Jesus’ life and ministry. You might be surprised. (Adult Formation Team)
