Episode Six, the final episode focused on the Gospel of St. Matthew, in the AIC Bible Study Video series, New Testament: Gospels, is now online in video and podcast versions.  This completes the rebuild of the St. Matthew portion of the Bible Study Videos, making them consistent with current videos in all series and also adding many examples of historic Church art from many sources.  Episode Six includes selected examples of unique content and quotations, including the long form of the Lord’s Prayer and the Beatitudes, plus the “kingdom” parables, and, as shown in the illustration, the curious miracle of the coin in the fish at Capernaum (Matt. 17:24-29).

In the next episode, Episode Seven, I focus on the Gospel of St. Mark with an introduction to its history, authorship, time frame, language, intended audience and style, plus the beginning of my discussion of St. Mark’s themes, starting the Jesus as Servant of the Father.

Podcast Homilies Redux

I have now finished Phase I of the rebuilding of the Podcast Homilies page I announced in October.  Viewers and listeners will now find new links to freshly-recorded versions of my four theme-word or theme-phrase homilies for the Four Sundays in Advent; plus new Podcast Homilies for Christmas Day, First Sunday after Christmas Day, and Second Sunday after Christmas Day; and revised homilies for Epiphany (Day) and all six Sundays after Epiphany.  Within each homily are internal cross-references to Other AIC Resources on the same words, readings, topics or phrases.

These Other AIC Resources include:

  • Seasonal Videos:  our now-complete array of Seasonal Videos beginning with our two episode series, Advent: a Season of Penitence & Preparation, and ending with our nine episode series, Trinitytide: the Teaching Season.  Seasonal Videos are linked from the Digital Library page, displayed in order of the seasons on the Anglican Church Calendar.
  • Bible Study Videos:   both our Bible Study Video series, New Testament: Gospels (presented in 44 episodes) and Revelation presented in 28 episodes.  New episodes in the New Testament series will be recorded during late Winter and Spring, 2019 A.D.  Bible Study videos are linked from the Bible Study page.
  • Christian Education Videos: These include The Nicene Creed (presented in eight episodes), The Lord’s Prayer (presented in two episodes), The Lives of the Saints (presented in two series); and the on-going series The War on Christianity.  Christian Education Videos are linked from the Digital Library page, following the Seasonal Video links.
  • AIC Bookstore Publications:  all our books are available by special order from commercial bookstores and through the Virtual Bookstore link on the Home Page, which connects viewers to my Amazon Author page.  There will likely be one new books added in 2019 A.D., a Nativity account using the complete text from the Gospels of St. Matthew and St. Luke, illustrated with many of the historic works of art which were used for the Seasonal Video series.

Phase 2 in the rebuild, to be completed in January A.D. 2019, will include revised Podcast Homilies, with internal cross-references, for Gesima (Pre-Lent); Lent; and Easter.   The texts for all three seasons have been written and need only a final review before recording.  Texts for Good Friday remain unchanged, since they were revised in Spring A.D. 2018.   Phase 3, to be completed in February A.D. 2019, will include Podcast Homilies for Whitsunday/Pentecost, Trinity Sunday and the Sundays after Trinity.   The texts for Trinity season are only in the early stage of editing.   Both Phase 2 and Phase 3 will be work to be accomplished in the cold, dark and wet days of Winter in Virginia, when working on the yard, garden and house cannot be comfortably accomplished.

After a rocky start to the week (hip joint problems) I got back on track (literally and figuratively) by midweek.  This week’s installment of the Revelation series video required a change of plan.  Owing to the length, I had to split the Episode into two parts.  Part 1 is Revelation 20:1-6, St. John’s poetic introduction.  Part 2 is verses 7 through 21.   The illustration is Binding and Loosing of the Beast from the Bamberg Apocalypse.

Sixteenth Sunday After Trinity

Quite a busy week, starting with a heart catheterization on Tuesday.  I am thankful and glad to report that the test found no new blockages in my heart and no obstruction in the stent which was installed in 2013.  The most convincing theory of the moment is that my symptoms were the result of stress, lack of exercise and lack of sleep, etc.  Consequently, lifestyle changes have already been made, including regular exercise, including at least 30 minutes of walking, and regular massages at my chiropractor’s office.

There will be no new episodes in our Bible Study series on Revelation this week.  I hope to complete work on Episode 23, focused on Revelation 18, before the end of next week.  All the slides are done, as is the sound recording.  I have to coordinate the pictures and sound, tedious, time-consuming work for which had neither time nor energy for this week!  Thanks for your patience.

I am presently at work on the final Chapter of Revelation and hope to have all the episodes completed before the middle of October.

I did complete and upload to the AIC Web Site and Facebook my Podcast Homily for Sixteenth Sunday After Trinity.  The Gospel reading covers the Raising of the Son of the Widow of Nain (Luke 7:11-17).  The only illustration I know of is the lovely watercolor from the Life of Christ series by James Tissot at the Brooklyn Museum.
