Reagan Cocke's Lunchtime Bible Study
The Gospel of Matthew
Tuesdays beginning September 13, 11:30 am - 12:30 pm in Rm 201

A long-time favorite study, Reagan's Lunchtime Bible study returns on Tuesdays this fall.

In the early second century Church, the most frequently quoted Gospel was Matthew. Why? Because Matthew was placed first in almost every early list of scriptures of the New Testament. Why? Perhaps it was thought to have been the first Gospel written, even though few scholars take that position today. Or perhaps it was because the early Christians were quite conscious of their Jewish roots, and Matthew’s Gospel more than the other three provided a perspective on this issue, helping to bridge between the New and Old Testaments.

One thing, however, is clear: God intended the Church to have four Gospels and not just one. Having four Gospels gives us a clear picture of Jesus. Yet, we can also enjoy studying the differences between the four, appreciating what we learn from them. Come join The Rev. Reagan Cocke as he looks at what makes Matthew stand out from the other three Gospels.
