An early-church father, Clement of Alexandria, described the Gospel of John as a “spiritual account” of Jesus’ life and teaching. Often considered more theological than historical, the portrait of Jesus in the Gospel of John is very different from the other Gospels. John includes stories about Jesus that do not appear in Matthew, Mark, and Luke. Some of these differences will be the focus of our discussions over the weeks and we hope you can attend any one of them as John is the Gospel readings during the season of Easter and interspersed throughout the year.
This is not a Bible lecture but rather a discussion of how what we read in Scripture is applicable to our daily life and faith. Attend either Mondays from 7:30-9:00 in Room 112 or Wednesday mornings from 9:30-11:00. No prior attendance or scriptural knowledge is required to gain insight and value from the discussion. Just drop on in. Bibles are available if you don’t have one. See you in January. The following dates, reading, and topics are as follows:
- Jan 6/8 Chapters 6-9 Adulterous Woman
