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).

May God bless you in all that you do in his name! Amen.  Glory be to God for all things! Amen.
