This workshop will study Matthew 2:1-23 and examine the upside-down portrait of power in Matthew's story of Herod and the child. Participants will then reflect on the significance of this upside-down portrait of power for Christians living in the present-day world of 2022. Bring your Bible and join the discussion!
