Adult Education | Bible Study

Join us as we gather for Adult Education | Bible Study on Sunday mornings in the lounge at 8:45am and Wednesdays at 7:00pm via Zoom to learn about the word of God through our bible. You are welcome to come to either session – or come to both!  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. (See Church calendar for schedule and Zoom meeting link.)
Adult Education Focuses on the words of Christianity and their meanings based on when they were written compared to today’s interpretation.

Filmed at Centenary College of Louisiana in 2005, Dr. Crossan’s lectures are based on his book, In Search of Paul, which he coauthored with field archeologist Dr. Jonathon Reed. Crossan, a world-renowned Jesus scholar and author, explores the biblical text, first and second century non-Christian documents and cutting edge archaeological research to show that the Mediterranean world of the first century was dominated and shaped by Roman Imperial religious and economic agenda. He says that it was against this background that early Christians offered their alternative program for community and society. Indeed, he says, early Christians understood that it was not Caesar who was the Son of God and Savior of the World, as the Empire taught, but in fact, it was Jesus of Nazareth, a Jewish peasant from Galilee in Judea. Crossan’s lectures provide a new, vibrant picture of the world into which Jesus and the emerging church were born.
