Episode Twenty in the AIC’s The New Testament: Gospels Bible Study Video series was completed in the revised version earlier today and was uploaded this afternoon. Topics include the final unique parable, the Pharisee and the Tax Collector (Publican in KJV); plus commentary on unique content including the Raising of the Son of the Widow of Nain, the Healing of the Ten Lepers and the Sending and Return of the Seventy. Other illustrations are an engraving by Gustav Dore’, two watercolors by James Tissot, and an early 13th C. miniature illumination of Jesus Teaching (originally used to illustrate Matthew 5).
This week’s featured illustration is from the Codex Aureus of Echternach, produced in the 2nd Qtr of the 11th C. at the Benedictine Monastery of St. Willibrod, Echternach, then Germany and now Luxembourg, from the collection of the German National Library, Nuremberg, Germany, which acquired the manuscript in the 20th C. in order to keep it in Germany. In the original the scene was paired with the Healing of Blind Bartimaeus on the bottom line on a three-line page with six scenes.. The 96 dpi version barely does justice to the original. I’ve limited its size in order to enhance the detail.
Episode Twenty-one and Episode Twenty-two were recorded yesterday. I have now completed the rebuild of the script and slides for Episode Forty-five, the final episode on the Gospel of St. John. On the present schedule I hope to complete and release one video/podcast per week through the end of the year and complete the uploads in January A.D. 2020. I’ll have to double up somewhere, with two per week, if my voice will permit, in order to complete the work by then.
As always, thanks for you interest and support. May God bless you in all that you do in His Name! Amen! Glory be to God for all things! Amen!
