Title: MATTHEW: FOR LIVING THE GOSPEL FOR A NEW YEAR (SINGLE CD)
A clear, concise overview of the Gospel of Matthew is given that is filled with new and exciting insights. Who wrote the Gospel, why was it written, and how it gained re-eminence in the early Church are all explained. The program stresses the importance of the opening chapters of the Gospel not only for all that follows but for the revealing truth of Jesus and his unique Messianic role in the history of salvation. The sayings of Jesus were important to the early Church because they taught the disciples how to live. In this presentation the arrangement and context of these sayings are explained to help the listener gain an ever-clearer understanding of the inspired truth of Matthew. Matthew's Gospel focuses the reader's attention on the most important elements of being a believing community and in a special way can strengthen the believing community in our own time just as it did in the first century. More than that, however, is an explanation of how the Church uses the readings in the liturgical year and how the Gospel builds up the Church today. 70 minutes.
