Introducing Matthew's Gospel with the Rev'd Dr Tim Gaden

Sunday 27 October @ 2pm

Venue: St Paul's Camperdown

Sunday 10 November @ 2pm

Venue: St Peter's Ballarat

2014 is the year of Matthew, the longest of the gospels and the one with more teaching from Jesus than any other. These sessions -- a combination of seminar-style presentation and bible study -- will explore Matthew's theology.

What difference does it make to see Jesus as the New Moses? Why is Matthew's Gospel the only one that mentions the church by name and what kind of community does Matthew think the church should be? How do we measure up? Does Matthew's vision of God differ from the God we meet in Mark, Luke, John or Paul?

Participants will reflect on these questions (and more!) together with the Rev'd Dr Tim Gaden.
