Book Description

1 Jan 2001 Gospels Beyond 2000
After two thousand years the four gospels remain the heart of the Christian message to the world. But the development of scriptural studies over the last century has left many people perplexed and puzzled about the gospels.

In his new book, Trustworthy and True: The Gospels Beyond 2000, Adrian Graffy uses the contributions of gospel scholarship to illuminate the gospels with fascinating new insights. He traces the story of Jesus both in the synoptic tradition of Mark, Matthew and Luke, and in the separate tradition of John. He shows how on the basis of the historical record of Jesus, the faith of the early Christian communities developed. He illustrates how the gospels continue to speak powerfully to people of our time and remain 'trustworthy and true' as the third millennium of Christian faith begins.

This book provides a welcome support for all those involved in preaching and teaching the Christian message. For all Christians and all those attracted by the person of Jesus, Trustworthy and True offers a valuable and user-friendly approach to the gospels. It is suitable for use both by individuals and in groups.

Trustworthy and True is ideal as an introductory text for the study of the gospels, as a stimulating aid to the preparation of homilies and scripture group sessions, and as a companion for reflective reading of the gospels.

5.0 out of 5 stars An honest look at the gospels 23 Oct 2001
"Trustworthy and True - The Gospels beyond 2000, takes an honest look at the gospels, the written form of the Good News. Father Adrian Graffy shows how they are not exact in all their details but a developing witness both to the life and deeds of Jesus and to the growing understanding of Jesus among his followers. He examines them from the perspectives of history and Christian tradition and shows how, in the third millennium of Christian faith, they continue to speak powerfully to us.
First Father Adrian travels thematically through the life of Jesus, simultaneously exploring the variations in the treatment of actions, events and teaching by the writers of the three "synoptic" gospels, Matthew, Mark and Luke,who share the same perspective. He shows how it is plausible that Matthew and Luke preserved, copied and adapted the material of the shortest gospel, that of Mark, adding material and drawing upon new understanding inspired by the Spirit among the first followers of Jesus. Matthew and Luke adopted Mark's simple structural framework of Jesus' Galilee ministry, his journey to Jerusalem and the Jerusalem events. Matthew inserted blocks of the teaching of Jesus. Luke extended the narrative of the journey to Jerusalem.
Each gospel was affected by the situation of the community for which it was written. The Gospel of Mark emphasises the suffering of Jesus and the persecution of his followers. The Gospel of Matthew is concerned with presenting the teaching of Jesus to the Jews. The Gospel of Luke, focussing on Jesus' care for the poor and marginalised, suggests this may have been a special problem for the community for which Luke was writing.
