The Gospel… According to Matthew

scriptureWhile all four Gospel accounts present Jesus as our Savior through His Passion, Death, and Resurrection, each account begins in their own way, and uses different traditions that each point to Jesus as the Son of God. St. Matthew’s Gospel account presents Jesus as the Messianic Teacher, that is, both the Anointed One of God and the loving Teacher of Wisdom.

This course is a study of this gospel message as presented by Matthew to a Jewish community. Come read, consider, and pray with us on Wednesdays, morning or evening. Either bring your own favorite Bible to class, or you can use the large-print hard-cover Bibles that are in the room. We will be using the New Collegeville Bible Commentary: The Gospel According to Matthew.

If you are just returning to town, feel free to join the class at any time.
