During the season of Advent this year we are planning to engage a biblical study called Light of the World: A Beginning’s Guide to Advent.
In this study, author, professor, and biblical scholar Amy-Jill Levine explores the biblical texts surrounding the story of the birth of Jesus. She traces the Christmas narrative through the stories of Zechariah and Elizabeth, Mary, the journey to Bethlehem, and the visit from the Magi. These stories open conversations around connections of the Gospel stories to the Old Testament, the role of women in first-century Jewish culture, the importance of Mary’s visitation and the revolutionary implications of Mary’s Magnificat, the census and the stable, and the star of Bethlehem and the flight to Egypt.
This is a free online four-week offering.
Tuesday evenings from 6-7:15PM on Zoom:
November 30, December 7, 14, 2
Registration is required via Eventbrite
NOTE: Zoom link will be sent to registered participants.
