This week, Richie, Howard, and Matthew discuss the first gospel: Matthew.

Matthew’s gospel is the most Jewish of the gospels. He cites the Hebrew Bible constantly and shows Jesus as a figure of Moses. Matthew gives us a glimpse into the preaching of Jesus by recording five main sermons. Listen and enjoy!

If you’ve wanted to see the “word clouds” we’ve mentioned that show repeated words in the gospel, check out the site Sixty-Six clouds.

Luke’s gospel is everything that Mark wasn’t. It’s long, it’s detailed, it’s precise.

Volume one of Luke’s writings (the book of Acts is volume two) introduces us to Jesus. It upends the religious structures of the day. It’s the religious leaders that are marginalized and the marginalized that are lifted up. It sounds like what would happen if someone was serious about that “God exalts the humble” sort of stuff.

Luke is a consummate historian. His detail and precision in the life of Jesus gives us more historical anchor points than any other gospel writer. Come listen as Richie G, Howard Wingo, and Matthew Hiatt discuss this beautiful gospel.
