Presented by Thomas Bonacci, CP
The Passion motif in the Gospel of Matthew extends throughout the Gospel narrative itself. We will explore three crucial texts to underscore this insight: Matthew 2: 16-18 – the slaughter of the Innocents, Matthew 8: 14-17 – the Cure of Simon Peter’s Mother-in-Law, and Matthew 27: 19 – the distress of Pilate’s wife. The Passion of Jesus is, at one and the same time, solidarity with the afflicted and the call for that justice by which the Kingdom of God is realized on Earth in the here and now of our lives.
