“The Gospel Faces of Jesus” with Tom Beers. The four canonical gospels present discreet literary portraits of Jesus. In this series we will take a literary approach to the four gospels with an eye to the distinct voice of each. Then, taking the four together, we will open ourselves to appreciating the rich, multi-dimensional portrait of Jesus our gospels provide. We will also look at the development of “Christology” in other New Testament writings.
