The Gospel of Matthew
Four Wednesdays in May: 6, 13, 20, 27 from 7pm - 9pm
The Christian Church today is facing change. The Gospel of Matthew can help Christians of the 21st century to see change as fulfilment of our Christian heritage rather than a denial of it.
The Gospel of Matthew is the most Jewish of all the gospels. It was written around 85 AD for a community of believers who were steeped in the traditions of Judaism but were being forced to choose between their Jewish heritage and their Christian beliefs. The Gospel was written to encourage believers at this difficult time - to show that by following Christ they were continuing and fulfilling their Jewish heritage rather than rejecting it.
