There have been moments when I did not think I would ever be able to complete the New Testament: Gospels and Epistles series, but it is now finished. Episode Forty-five completes the study with the final four of five Unique Events in the Gospel of St. John: Restoration of the Adulterous Woman; Foot Washing; Scriptural Warrant for the Sacrament of Confession/Penance; and Jesus’ post-Resurrection Breakfast by the sea with the eleven Disciples. Illustrations for the episode include work by Gustav Dore’ (from Dore’s English Bible); James Tissot; a 6th C. mosaic at Ravenna, Italy and another at the Hagia Sophia, Constantinople/Istanbul; a 16th C. Russian Orthodox icon in the Pskov tradition; and the ICHTHYS logo that was inspired, in part, by St. John’s account of the post-Resurrection breakfast.
The episode is available in both QuickTime movie/video and Podcast formats. Watch Episode 45. Listen to Episode 45. Continue reading “Trinity Sunday and New Testament – Episode 45”
