Sintesi dell'editore

Let one of the world's foremost Scripture scholars guide you to a deeper appreciation of the Gospel according to Matthew.

More than any other Gospel, Matthew reflects Christianity's Jewish roots. As the first book of the New Testament, it provides a fitting transition from the Old Testament. Revered as the "Church's Gospel", Matthew draws on Jewish law while anticipating a Church "of all nations."

To appreciate Matthew, then, you must first understand its historical and theological contexts. Now, Fr. Donald Senior, a leading expert on Matthew, helps you discover anew the evangelist's profound themes and literary features. Combining world-class scholarship with incisive insights, this course is both erudite and accessible.

You'll begin by considering Matthew's similarities with and differences from Mark, Luke, and John. Next, you will explore its historical background and relationship to the Old Testament. You will then cover the full span of the Gospel of Matthew, from the infancy narrative to the Great Commission.

By taking a closer look at passages like the Sermon on the Mount, you will unpack Matthew's most unique features and compelling messages. With this newfound appreciation, you will find inspiration and guidance in Matthew's words.

"Father Donald Senior is a leading expert on the Gospel of Matthew. No one is more qualified to explain its intricacies. Not only are his insights the fruit of technical expertise, but his reflections are pastorally sensitive and inviting. Now You Know Media has done a great service to produce these accessible, user-friendly resources. Highly recommended!" (Fr. Ronald D. Witherup, PSS)

Having immersed himself in studying, teaching, and preaching this Gospel for decades, Fr. Senior both opens up the meaning of the text and leads one to embrace its transformative power for believers today." (Sr. Barbara Reid, OP, VP and Academic Dean at CTU)

Nice summary of Matthew from older perspective

Only wish it were longer! Excellent summary of Matthew. Avoids some of the difficulties of interpretation.

Outstanding!

Over the year's I've enjoyed dozens of excellent audio courses by Learn25. This is one of my absolute favorites. Fr. Senior is a first rate scholar who shares his passion and insights into this special Gospel. It's no wonder Fr. Senior was selected to advise multiple popes on the New Testament, Senior combines wisdom, faith and scholarship. But he also clearly loves to teach and ensures his lectures are lively and engaging. It's especially useful when his own personal travels to the Holy Land shine through. Truly a treasure.

Do not even bother

It is really not study in the book of Matthew as advertised. Do not even bother to buy it
