A short course with Doug Gwyn and Francisco Burgos
April 8-12, 2018: Sunday, 4:30pm through Thursday, 1:00pm
The New Testament gospels associated with the names Matthew, Mark, and Luke were probably the work of whole communities of first-century Christians. Over the course of decades, they remembered the life and teachings of Jesus, and prophesied in his Spirit, to create the story we inherit today. As a twenty-first-century community, we will listen together to the teachings and stories of Jesus, seeking our own answers to his question, “Who do you say that I am?
Francisco Burgos will add further perspective from the community-centered Bible study methods of the liberation theology movement in Latin America. In addition, we will listen to some classic Quaker texts to bridge between the ancient text and our own experience. Participants may wish to bring their preferred translation of the Bible.
