Adult Education Bible Study | Holy Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church Belleville


Adult Education Bible Study

Adult Education is an opportunity for deeper adult exploration into the Bible and our Christian faith.  Learning happens at all stages of our lives, even into adult-hood and beyond.

Holy Trinity is happy to host a number of learning program opportunities!  You are welcome to join us for any or all of them!

Our Wednesday morning Adult Education Bible Study learning program has been cancelled due to an over busy schedule at the church right now.  This program will be offered again on Monday evenings in the Spring.  Please check back in a few weeks for more details. 

The program will be the DVD-based program titled "The Challenge of Jesus".

Travel back to the days of Jesus of Nazareth and explore the life and times of his Galilean ministry!  Why did Jesus happen when he happened? Why the confluence of the Baptism movement of John and the Kingdom movement of Jesus? Why the tiny villages around the Lake? Why the confrontations in Jerusalem? Why then? Why there?     

Why were the titles of Caesar Augustus — Divine, Son of God, God from God, Lord, Redeemer, Liberator, and Savior of the World — taken from a Roman emperor on the Palatine hill and given to a Jewish peasant on the Palestine plain? Was it low lampoon or high treason? Either way, the Romans were not laughing.


What were the priorities of Jesus' proclamation of the Kingdom? How was the status quo of Roman imperial theology subverted by this obscure Galilean whose message continues to indict empire today?


The Challenge of Jesus is a 16-session DVD and web-based study of the historical Jesus and the Kingdom of God with the world's leading Jesus scholar, John Dominic Crossan on location throughout the Mediterranean world.

All are welcome to join us.

Please check out our link to the Introduction to World Religions program as another learning opportunity.
