Christendom College graduate school professor Sal Ciresi will present a special advent talk titled “His Name Shall Be Emmanuel: Historical Markers, Fulfilled Prophecies, and the Incarnation in St. Matthew’s Gospel” at Christendom’s graduate school campus on Friday, December 14.
Ciresi’s talk will dive into St. Matthew’s account of the first Christmas, explaining how this singular episode of God becoming man is the turning point of Sacred History. In the middle of the Advent season, the talk will be a fitting meditation on the Nativity during this important liturgical cycle.
Ciresi is a lecturer in theology at the Christendom Graduate School of Theology, and is the founder and director of the St. Jerome Biblical Guild, an educational apostolate that promotes the study of Scripture within a theologiycal and practical framework. He is also the publisher of Veritas Scripturae, an international online Scripture journal. He was a diocesan consultant for the revision of the National Directory for Catechesis, and he writes a regular Scripture column for The Latin Mass magazine. Ciresi is a former host of the Catholic radio show CrossTalk and has a special interest in the doctrine of Biblical inerrancy.
The event will begin with a social at 6:30 p.m., followed by the lecture at 7:00 p.m. Christendom’s graduate school campus is located at 4407 Sano St., Alexandria, Virginia.
