25. Jesus and the Justice of God - Reflections on the Gospel of Matthew

Sean Goan

13 March-1 May (10.30-12.00 noon )

Matthew presents the Good News in a manner which radically reinterprets Jewish expectation around how God's justice would be made manifest in the world. He sees it fulfilled in Jesus' ministry which culminates in the earth shattering revelation of Holy Week and Easter. This course will focus on key texts from  the Gospel that express how the Evangelist interprets Jesus as God-with-Us, manifesting the covenant justice of God in his words and deeds.                                                                                                            €65 (6 weeks)

Price: General Admission EUR65.00
