In 1960, the famed German Expressionist Otto Dix published a series of 33 lithographs depicting scenes from the Gospel of Matthew. The entire series of prints is currently on exhibit at Sojourn Church Midtown through March 1st. In this February 21st lecture, New Testament scholar Dr. Jonathan Pennington will share his reflections on the interaction between these images and the biblical text.
