Title: IN LIGHT OF THE CROSS AND RESURRECTION: AN EXPLANATION OF MARK, MATTHEW AND LUKE - CD 1 OF 9
CD 1 contains "Reading A Gospel: What Is It?" This series is an intense review of what you might already know about the synoptic Gospels and an exciting challenge to your mind and spirit that will certainly deepen your understanding and appreciation of Mark, Matthew and Luke. The complex interrelationship between the synoptic Gospels is clearly explained. The major intellectual arguments about the Gospel are dealt with and the riveting questions that the inspired writers address are presented to the listener. She defends the traditional notion that Mark was the first written Gospel and presents an image of the crucified Messiah that is riveting. The conflicts with religious leaders, the debates, and the miracles of Jesus all lead up to the dramatic moment of the Death of the Messiah. The Gospel asks the question "Can flawed disciples be examples of faith?" She presents exactly how Matthew's Gospel expands and modifies Mark by emphasizing the role of the crowds, the righteousness of Jesus, and the conflicts amongst the disciples and with other Jews. Perkins then demonstrates how Luke draws characters, emphasizes the role of the poor, challenges the wealthy, and pictures salvation. 77 min.
