Adult Education | Bible Study

Join us as we gather for Adult Education | Bible Study on Sundays at 9:00am in the Lounge to learning about the word of God through our bible. We look at current events and worldly topics and use these to help understand what God has given us through his word to better deal and understand what is happening in our society.
We are starting with Biblical Literalism: A Gentile Heresy by John Shelby Spong at 9:00am on Sunday, September 15th in the lounge.
 
It is a study of Matthew’s gospel noting how the story was constructed using Jewish messianic expectations, Jewish symbolism, and the liturgical calendar of the synagogue that would have been obvious to Matthew’s original audience, but that was quickly foreign to the Gentile church as it developed after the split with the synagogue.
 
We have 5 videos of Spong’s lecture on this book from Chatauqua in 2016.
 
Following this we will move to The Challenge of Christ by John Dominic Crossan. That should likely get us to Advent or beyond.
