Matt Skinner, Associate Professor of New Testament, Luther Seminary
In the Gospel according to Matthew, Jesus speaks words of deep comfort("Blessed are the poor in spirit") and words of stringent judgment ("Bind him hand and foot, and throw him into the outer darkness"). It's a Gospel that speaks, sometimes in stark ways, about the fragility of faith, the importance of Christian community and the threats lurking in human nature and religious arrogance. Spend an afternoon reacquainting yourself with this rich and challenging Gospel, its portrait of Jesus Christ the teacher and fulfillment of the law, and its focus on equipping the church to navigate a sometimes confusing existence in an often hostile world.
1:30 - 5 p.m. Held immediately after the Celebration for Biblical Preaching. Register for both events today!
