Theological Interpretation of the Gospel of Matthew
This class will dive deep into the Gospel of Matthew, looking not only at its context and history but to a theological interpretation of its contents. To teach the Bible faithfully one must know both what it says and what it means. The Gospels are not mere biographies of Jesus but rather theological interpretations of Jesus’ life describing the saving work of God in him. A theological interpretation of Scripture allows the full depth of its meaning to be seen and proclaimed in class and sermon.
