Scripture Study: Parables of the Kingdom – Begins November 3rd
Join us Thursday mornings from 8:15 am to 10:00 am for a new scripture study.
Some of the most memorable teachings of Jesus were delivered as parables and are found in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke (the Synoptic Gospels). Lesson one begins with acquainting participants with the important characteristics of a parable, and how they use images familiar to the audience and draw on common experience that nevertheless challenges the audience to see things in a new way. Subsequent lessons look at the parables found in Mark’s Gospel, where the disciples are a privileged audience to Jesus’ private explanations of the parables. Lessons four and five explore the ways Matthew uses the same parables but gives them a slightly different twist.
This scripture study runs November 3rd through December 15th and will be in the Parish Hall library. All are welcome!
Cost of materials (study book) will be $17. For questions contact Elisa Baroni at firstname.lastname@example.org.
