ADULT ED SERIES: A New Look at the Parables of Jesus

Sundays, March 3 to April 7
10:30 am in the Living Room (lower level by 3rd St. entrance)

For six weeks we will be using the series “Short Stories by Jesus: The enigmatic parables of a controversial Rabbi.” This DVD and study guide series by Amy-Jill Levine, Jewish professor of New Testament and Jewish Studies at Vanderbilt Divinity School, will help us take a fresh look at some of the parables of Jesus through the eyes and ears of the Jewish people back in the time of Jesus. All are welcome! Questions? Contact Penny Catlin.


Sunday, April 28 at 10:15 am, Garden Room at Trinity (Please note earlier time and location.)
Leader Bob Boyd

Who was Pilate? What was his official role? What role did he play in the trial of Jesus? What happened to him? Pontius Pilate is one of those “seasonal” biblical characters who appears for a short time in our church year and then is not thought about until the following year. If he was so important, why do we know so little about him? You are invited to participate in a session that will help us understand who he was. All are welcome! Please note earlier start time and location.
