The Mission of St. Luke will be sponsoring a study of the four Gospels starting on January 25, 2015. Led by The Rev.Gene Flanery, Director of the Mission, the studies will focus on how the four Gospels compliment rather than contradict each other.
“One of the classes that had a profound effect on me in seminary was the study of the Gospels,” says Rev. Flanery. “Why do we have four Gospels? We could easily have had only one or perhaps 12. Historically they are related to the four beasts in Ezekiel Chapter 1. The living creatures that represented the glory of the Lord had four faces: the human, the lion, the ox and the eagle. This symbolism was attached to the Gospels as early as the 2nd century and was incorporated into Jerome’s Vulgate (the Latin Bible) and later confirmed in Celtic Christianity,” he continued.
The study sessions will follow this order:
Mark – Jesus as the Lion
Matthew – Jesus as the human face of God
Luke – Jesus as the Ox
John – Jesus as the Eagle
