This fall our weekday study will explore the historical Jesus and the challenge of his proclamation of the Kingdom of God in the context of the Roman Empire.

We will use Living the Question’s “First Light” curriculum which features scholars John Dominic Crossan and Marcus Borg and footage from biblical lands. To see a sample of the video component,

Join us at Lewis House (masks required) or by Zoom Mondays at 10am beginning on September 13th. (Tentative session schedule is below.)


Print out the Readings and Discussion Questions or request them in print form from the church office.
