Proclaiming the Kingdom: The Gospel of Matthew

A Ten Lesson Audio Bible Study Course

The audio course “Proclaiming the Kingdom” systematically unpacks the riches of the Gospel of Matthew.  Sometimes called “the Gospel of the Kingdom” because of its central theme, Matthew was the most often quoted of the four gospels in the writings of the early Church Fathers.  These talks were originally delivered to an audience of priests and deacons on retreat at St. Vincent’s Archabbey in Latrobe, Pennsylvania.  They are both theologically rich and eminently practical.  To get the most out of these presentations by Dr. Scott Hahn, Dr. Brant Pitre, and Dr. John Bergsma, you should read the chapters of Matthew once through before listening to the lecture. For Dr. Pitre and Dr. Bergsma’s talks, you may want to print out the handouts and follow along (unless you’re driving of course).

You can listen online or download the talks to your computer or mp3 player.

The Gospel According to Matthew - by Scott Hahn & Curtis Mitch

Based on the Revised Standard Version-Catholic Edition, this volume leads readers through a penetrating study of the Gospel of Matthew, using the biblical text itself and the Church’s own guidelines for understanding the Bible. Ample notes accompany each page, providing fresh insights and commentary by renowned Bible teachers Scott Hahn and Curtis Mitch, as well as time-tested interpretations from the Fathers of the Church. These helpful study notes make explicit what St. Matthew often assumes. Or they provide rich historical, cultural, geographical or theological information pertinent to the Gospel—information that bridges the distance between the biblical world and our own.
