If we knew the liturgical calendar of the Synagogue, we could recognize the organising principle behind Matthew’s Gospel. Bishop Jack Spong will further explore the fact that Biblical fundamentalism is so often the response of Gentile worshippers who are unfamiliar with anything Jewish. He will invite us to look at Matthew’s Gospel with a new set of eyes.
