Are the words, actions, and teachings of Jesus found in the Gospels really His words, actions, and teachings? Does it really matter if we know what Jesus actually said or did if it’s all just a matter of faith? Are archaeology and history important to being a Christian? Is it really possible to have a personal experience of the risen Lord just through reading a book? Illuminating Study In this new 7-MP3 series, The first of two parts, Prof. Michael Barber provides an illuminating study of the single most famous source for the life of Jesus - the Gospel of Saint Matthew. Traditionally known as the “Gospel of the Church,” Matthew is by far the most familiar Gospel to Catholics. Now you’ll take a new look at the familiar stories found only in Matthew—the visit of the Magi, Saint Joseph and the Angel, the Sermon on Mount, the Our Father, Jesus giving Peter the Keys of the Kingdom and much more. The Heart of the Faith As you listen to this verse-by-verse study of the Gospel of Saint Matthew, you’ll discover how the heart of the Christian faith is that God entered onto the human scene. And, as well known author and speaker Michael Barber guides you through this inspired book, you’ll uncover the crucial relationship between Saint Matthew’s Gospel and the Old Testament prophecies of the coming of the Messiah. Written primarily for a first century Jewish audience, you’ll find Matthew a treasure of Old Testament Biblical knowledge that leads to the fulfillment of God’s Covenant with His people in the person of Christ Jesus. A Personal Encounter with Christ Best of all, you’ll discover that the Holy Bible isn’t just a dusty old book, but the living and active Word of God. And that, it is in Sacred Scripture—read in the context of the Church established by Christ—that you can come to a powerful, personal encounter with the Risen Lord. As Michael reveals, we don’t study the Bible just to answer arguments against Catholicism… ultimately, we read Scripture because it is there that we encounter the living Christ. And the more time you spend immersed in Sacred Scripture, the longer you will be able to stay in His Presence and listen to what He has to tell you for your life today. Order The Gospel of Saint Matthew today and rediscover the principle source for life and teaching of the Incarnate Word. Discover!
