Summer Institute 2015

REUNION: Tanakh and the Gospel of Matthew
August 3-7 • 9AM to 4PM

2015 Summer InstituteChristian culture tends to look at the New Testament in isolation, but it was written in a time and culture saturated with the thought forms forged in the Old Testament writings (Tanakh). REUNION is intended to reunite Matthew with its Old Testament roots. Join Gutenberg tutors and Rabbi Dr. Carl Kinbar at Gutenberg College to explore how Matthew, an Apostle and a Jew, used passages from the Tanakh to convey the truth about the Messiah Jesus.

Institute Details

Format: Each morning, short lectures will provide background on passages from the Tanakh and the passages in which Matthew uses them. Participants will then discuss each passage in small-group workshops led by the speakers below and other Gutenberg tutors. Each afternoon, two lectures (“reunions”) and a question-and-answer session will help clarify Matthew’s use of the Tanakh.

Venue: Gutenberg College, 1883 University Street, Eugene, OR

Cost (includes lunch and morning and afternoon snacks): $70 per person.

Housing: Inquire at the Gutenberg office.

Registration: Call the Gutenberg College office, 541-683-5141, or email. Institute limited to 50 participants.

The Caps Program

Gutenberg College introduced a new study program in 2014: the Caps Program. This program requires graduate level academic work, but it is unaccredited, and the course work is unlikely to be recognized by any accredited institution. The Caps Program could be interesting to two kinds of people: (1) those who want to pursue a graduate level education in one of the disciplines listed below; and (2) those who want to take advantage of the educational opportunities (individual courses) offered in conjunction with these programs. A complete description of the Caps Program is available here.

Caps Program Disciplines:

  • Music History
  • Philosophy of Science
  • New Testament in English
  • New Testament in Greek
  • Old Testament Exegesis
  • New Testament Greek
