Listen to audio version of study center essays as well as lectures and talks.

In this episode of our podcast, we are pleased to bring you audio of a lecture delivered on Tuesday, March 29th by our director, Dr. Richard Horner. Here is how Dr. Horner described the talk:

Why does Matthew tell the story of Jesus differently from Mark and Luke? Perhaps he is confused or mistaken, but if not, then what is he doing? Come join us for a brief exploration of this problem, for a glimpse of how the four gospels relate to each other, and for a taste of what we’ve been offering in “Reading the Gospels” over the past twenty years.

Next week, you can look for audio of Dr. Horner’s final lecture as executive director, “The Wisdom of Qoheleth: Ecclesiastes as a Meditation on Life in a Troubled World.”

Please feel free to share this talk or any other of our other podcast episodes with anyone you think would be interested.
