Episode Five in the revised version of our Bible Study Video series, New Testament: Gospels, was made available this morning in both video and podcast versions.  In this episode I continue my discussion of the final four examples of St. Matthew’s theme of the Life of Christ as fulfillment of Old Testament prophecies, plus the first examples of another of his themes, Jesus’ own prophecies of events to come.

Listen to the Podcast.

The episode includes many more examples of rare Church art from the 6th through the 19th C., including Matthew Writing His Gospel, from the Codex Aureus of Echternach, made in the 2nd or 3rd Quarter, 11th C., based on the copy in Ms Egerton 608, Folio 19v, from the British Library, London, England.  I applied perspective correction to adjust the original image.

Next time, in Episode Six, the focus is on unique text in St. Matthew’s Gospel, including memorable sayings and quotations.

As always, thank you for your interest and support for this online ministry.
