Time: 4:30 pm
Thursday Afternoon Scripture Study began on January 9th at 4:30pm in the Parish Center. We are completing the study of Matthew (Year A) Just in time for the beginning of Lent. Beginning with the Transfiguration of Jesus in Chapter 17:1 the Gospel of Matthews continues to reveal through Jesus’ teachings what it means to be a disciple. This part of the study of Matthew reveals a growing tension as Jesus ministers around Jerusalem, is arrested is crucified and rises to new life. Revealed as Emmanuel (God with us) at the start of the Gospel. Jesus will promise his continuing presences as the disciples are commissioned at the close of the Gospel. Commentary, study and reflection questions prayers and access to recorded lectures are included.
