Beginning February 28
Tuesdays at 10:15 a.m.
Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m.
The Gospel According to Matthew
Matthew’s gospel, written somewhere between 80 and 95 CE, is the first book in the Christian Scriptures. It was not the first gospel written that distinction goes to Mark. Perhaps it is first because it was written for and by a Christian community composed of mainly Jewish members, and because of that, it follows the Hebrew Scriptures in our Bibles. This course will dig deep into the radical teachings of Jesus of Nazareth. It will investigate the role Empire has had in how following Jesus changed, and its consequences for today.
The course will be held in-person only on Tuesday mornings from 10:15 – 11:45 and repeated on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 – 8 p.m. The course will begin on February 28 and run consecutively for five weeks.
Registration is available and greatly appreciated, but not strictly required.
