All are welcome to join us each Saturday morning for Adult Study. We are currently studying the books of the New Testament
We are currently meeting on Zoom (Meeting ID: 893 3309 1187; Password: 60187) at 9:30 am.
Although the Saturday morning group has been together for some time, we would be thrilled to welcome new members to join us for this survey of the literature that gave rise to our own faith tradition.
The New Testament is something of a paradox. On the one hand, it is a single book—or part of a book, the Christian Bible. As such, Christians believe that it communicates a single religious message. On the other hand, it is a collection of 27 different books, written by probably 16 different authors at various times and places. This paradox expresses itself in a variety of ways. For example, the New Testament teaches that salvation comes through Jesus, but its individual books present differing pictures of who Jesus was and what he taught. This course investigates the diversity of the New Testament by studying the distinct perspectives of its individual writings in their historical contexts.
