Job 1–2 (The “Prologue”) with Brent Strawn

Join us as Dr. Dale Allison Jr. (Princeton Theological Seminary) orients us to the Gospel of Matthew. We discuss: Matthew’s historical setting; the book’s literary structure and major theological themes; major interpretive issues that the church has grappled with throughout the centuries; and what we would be missing if we did not have the gospel of Matthew. Listen here.

This Episode’s Blurb

Brent Strawn blurbs about horse mats. Yes, that’s right—horse mats:

We recently changed part of our garage into a home workout area. And flooring is an issue. You don’t want to park your car on the flooring. The car will mess up the flooring. But not if you go with horse mats. I’ve found horse mats on line, and they will support a car, because they’ll support a horse. And so, I’m really happy with these horse mats. . . . I recommend horse mats strongly. . . . I give it five stars on Amazon.
