Class Dates: TBA

Examination: TBA

The first part of this course focuses on the Gospel of Mark that allows one to see and experience the euangelion (Good News) that is the all-embracing life and message of Jesus in all its dimensions. Exegesis of selected texts will be supplemented by treatment of certain important themes as well as discussions on certain difficulties in interpretation (cruces interpretum). The second part of this course studies the theological message of the Gospel of Matthew that was communicated to the Jewish Christian readers and examines its relevance and application for us today. Matthew’s audience, his sources and his methodology will be investigated. Students will be guided to discover the author’s overall purpose and themes and a study will be made of how he arranged, structured and interpreted his source materials.
