The Meaning of Jesus: Two Visions
- Bible Study by NT Wright and Marcus Borg
- Thursday Mornings, 10:00 - 11:30 am
- Begins September 3
Was Jesus born of a virgin? Did he know he was the Messiah? Was he bodily resurrected from the dead? Did he intentionally die to redeem humankind? Was Jesus God? Two leading Jesus scholars with widely divergent views go right to the heart of these questions and others, presenting the opposing visions of Jesus that shape our faith today. Whether you know very little about modern New Testament scholarship and want a place to start, or whether you are more knowledgeable but want to see two scholars grapple with some fundamental controversies that are surprisingly rarely addressed, this is the study for you! Class will be Thursday mornings from 10 until 11:30; September 3 - November 19, led by Julia Walker. Cost for the book is $16. Please read through page 30 before the first day of class.
