Easter Resources 2017
Reading Matthew During this year, most of our Gospel readings are from Matthew. Sometimes it's helpful to read the Gospels at a single sitting (or a few). Reading the Gospel this way will give us a greater depth and understanding of Jesus' story. It will also help us to be more faithful followers of Jesus, as we pray and act and listen our way into being formed by him. In order to help us have some background and context for this Gospel, here are three short (10 min.) videos by Bishop Tom Wright, Professor of New Testament at St. Andrew's, Scotland; former Bishop of Durham, England, on Matthew.
