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!
HOLY TRINITY WILL NOW PROVIDE ONE ADULT EDUCATION PROGRAM, via ZOOM BEGINNING ON MONDAY JANUARY 17 AT 7PM. Please contact Pastor Rob for details.
OUR TOPIC FOR THIS WINTER 2022 PROGRAM IS:
"LIBERATING THE GOSPELS: Reading the Bible with Jewish Eyes"
by John Shelby Spong
This program will explore the profound influence of Jewish theology, practices and holy days that influenced the writing of the Gospels. We will be reading the book "Liberating the Gospels" by the late John Shelby Spong to guide us through this learning process. In this book we will learn about the Jewish religious liturgical calendar that taught the people the Torah. Spong argues that the Gospel writers followed this familiar pattern but created stories about Jesus to be read in synagogues for followers of Jesus.
We will explore holy days such as Yom Kippur, Rosh Hashanah, Passover, Sukkot and others. We will learn how synagogue rabbi's read the Torah to their congregations on the Sabbath. We will learn how all of this influenced the writing of the Gospels and the stories of Jesus.
Our next session: Monday, April 04 @ 7pm
Topic: Read Chapter 9 (part 2) (Leviticus & Numbers): The Gospel of Luke - Reading the Gospel of Luke Against the Patterns of the Torah
If you are interested in participating, please let Pastor Rob know (firstname.lastname@example.org, 613 969 1257), and Zoom info will be sent to you.
All are welcome to join us.
