The ‘Vicar of Jesus’ Comes to Britain

17/09/10 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (2) Comments

Much has been written about Pope Benedict XVI’s visit to the UK over the next few days. Yesterday he touched down in Edinburgh as part of a four day visit to England and Scotland which will see him also visit Glasgow, London and Birmingham. More ...

TV Review: Rev.

28/07/10 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (1) Comments

The BBC's latest sit-com, Rev., has been pulling in praise from religious and non-religious critics alike. With only one episode to go, now seemed like a good time to review the series as a whole before it disappears for the summer*. More ...

Earliest Images of Jesus’ Apostles Found

27/06/10 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (0) Comments

Archaeologists in Rome have uncovered the earliest known images of Jesus’ apostles Andrew and John. It’s the latest discovery in the Saint Tecla/Thekla catacomb deep below the streets of Vatican City where last year an image of the apostle Paul was also discovered. All three images have been dated to the second half of the 4th century AD.

Fishers of None

31/05/10 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (2) Comments

I read recently that the numbers of fish in the Sea of Galilee have become so low that the Israeli authorities have been forced to ban fishing there for the next two years. Some blame overfishing, whilst others point the finger at illegal fishermen. Still others blame changes in the environment which have disrupted the food chain. But it’s interesting that the fish that is worst-affected is the St. Peter’s fish, named after Jesus’ right-hand-man, Simon Peter. More ...

How Would Jesus Vote?

13/04/10 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (0) Comments

So the election has been called for May 6th and the next few weeks will see the airwaves thick with clichéd slogans, billboards festooned with glossy posters and armies of canvassers interrupting peaceful evenings. But is there anything worth voting for, and how would a certain preacher from Galilee have acted if he found himself (somewhat bizarrely) in our shoes today? More ...

TV Review: The Bible: A History - Jesus (With Gerry Adams)

22/02/10 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (9) Comments

Gerry Adams’ exploration of Jesus and his teaching was always going to prove controversial, but it was pleasing to see that Channel 4 didn’t just go for the headlines, but also managed to make a high-quality, thought-provoking, documentary as well. More ...

Irish Republican Jesus

13/02/10 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (0) Comments

Gerry Adams might not be someone you would expect to find talking about Jesus. Indeed the last Conservative government found him so despicable that they banned his voice from being broadcast. But next Sunday, Adams will be doing just that as part of Channel 4’s series, The Bible: A History. More ...

Here’s to you Mrs Robinson, Jesus loves you more than you will know.

14/01/10 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (2) Comments

The gospels only tell us of one occasion when Jesus encountered a woman caught in adultery (John 8). She is dragged before him in front of an unforgiving crowd, baying for blood. They all know the law: she should be stoned to death. More ...

All Change…

18/10/09 | Posted by Poppy | Permalink | (0) Comments

I've gone back to college after a long break and it is tough right now. The change to my routine as I try and study is really hard. I thought I was good with change but apparently not and the emotional trauma of buying a new pencil case had to be seen to be believed. Why is change so hard? More ...

Meeting a Saint

30/09/09 | Posted by Poppy | Permalink | (0) Comments

This week thousands of people have made a pilgrimage to see a casket that contains the bones of a young woman who died less that 100 years ago aged 24. She didn't do anything spectacular in her life yet she was described by Pope Pius X as "the greatest saint of modern times". Can ordinary by saintly? More ...
