"Gospel Portraiture and the Art of Interpretation”
Presented by Dr. Susan Calef

This talk will present an exploration of the distinctive features of each of the four Gospel “portraits” of Jesus and their contributions to Christian spirituality. The presentation will include select art works expressive of each portrait’s emphasis.

As a New Testament scholar and Director of the Women’s and Gender Studies Program at Creighton, SUSAN CALEF teaches courses on women and gender in biblical traditions, feminist and womanist interpretation of biblical texts, sickness and healing in the Bible, and the Gospels as sources of spirituality. She is currently writing a book on biblical spirituality entitled Questing God: Gospel Questions as Spiritual Guides.
