Six-Week Lenten Online Video Study
Entering The Passion Of Jesus by A. J. Levine
Jesus’ final days were full of risk. Every move he made was filled with anticipation, danger, and the potential for great loss or great reward.
Jesus risked his reputation when he entered Jerusalem in a victory parade. He risked his life when he dared to teach in the Temple. His followers risked everything when they left behind their homes or anointed him with costly perfume. We take risks as we read and re-read these stories, finding new meanings and new challenges.
In Entering the Passion of Jesus: A Beginner’s Guide to Holy Week, author, professor, and biblical scholar Amy-Jill Levine explores the biblical texts surrounding the Passion story. She shows us how the text raises ethical and spiritual questions for the reader, and how we all face risk in our Christian experience.
Classes are on Zoom on Wednesday evenings @ 7 p.m. and Sunday mornings @ 10 a.m. Wednesday and Sunday classes each week cover the same material and you are welcome to attend both classes because the discussion is always different!
**Please note, for the first week of the study, we will ONLY have the Sunday session due to the live Ash Wednesday evening imposition of ashes. We encourage our Wednesday regulars to join us on Sunday, February 21 for the first session in this study!**
Attending is easy! All you need is a computer, tablet, or smartphone with video camera capabilities and access to the internet. If you need more information or have never used Zoom before, please contact Gina for assistance.
