Interpreting the Synoptic Gospels (NT516/TS516, 3 credits)

22 May-1 June, 9.00 am-5.00 pm (starts on Tuesday, ends on the following Friday)

One-third of the pages of the New Testament are occupied by the first three Gospels-Matthew, Mark, and Luke. Students of the Bible have often asked, “Why are these three Gospels so similar?”, and, “Why do they have so many significant differences from each other?” These Gospels are the primary sources on the life and teachings of Jesus and they also inform us about the theology of their authors and the concerns of the local churches then. You will learn a variety of interpretive methods to help you go deeper in your understanding of these important books.

 

Rob MacEwen, PhD

Rob, a former missionary to East Asia, is passionate about helping others understand and apply God’s Word. He has authored Matthean Posteriority, a book that explores literary relationships between the first three gospels.

Tuesdays: 7.00 pm-9.15 pm  

The 500th anniversary of the Reformation was celebrated in 2017.

Luther came to that conviction by studying Romans. Would you like to study the book that transformed him and gave birth to the Protestant faith?

Come and learn from the teacher Dr Andrew Spurgeon who has published a commentary on Romans among other published works.
