The class will pursue a close exegetical analysis of Matthew, Mark, and Luke, with particular attention to the historical setting, style, and to the Gospels’ portrayal of Jesus, discipleship, the law, and suffering. The course aims to develop the student’s ability to integrate each of the evangelists’ perspective meaningfully into preaching, teaching, and theological reflection. This goal will be pursued through a survey of the structure, content, and main themes of each Gospel, based primarily upon an exegetical and intra-textual analysis with attention to current discussion in the scholarly literature.
