Insight Forum – Gospel Overture: The Christmas Story According to Matthew

The Rev. Dr. Russell C. Sullivan, Jr., Pastor, Pine Street Presbyterian Church

Themes found in the infancy narrative in Matthew are restated and reinforced throughout the body of the Gospel. As a result, the Christmas story can be understood as an overture to the Gospel, in much the same way that the music at the beginning of an opera introduces the themes that will be repeated in the body of the opera. Find out in Matthew’s version of Jesus’ birth what his main purpose is.

Hometown favorite Jonathan Hays presents a captivating recital with the beautiful singing we have all come to know and love. The New York Times said of Jonathan: “the nobility of his voice matched the nobility of his bearing and his singing was consistently strong, lucid, direct and bang on the note. His was a magnificent performance,” and Opera Magazine stated “he has a lovely baritone, nicely placed and warmly resonant but capable of taut edginess.”
