Lenten Bible Study

Wednesdays, March 6 – April 10, 2019
6:00 p.m. – Dinner (soups and bread)
6:30-7:30 p.m. – Study

Six Wednesdays in Lent adults will study Entering the Passion of Jesus: A Beginner’s Guide to Holy Week by Amy-Jill Levine.  Levine delves into the history and literature surrounding the last days of Jesus’ life, setting the narrative in historical context and analyzing the risks and motives of the story’s characters.  “From Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem to his prayerful agony in Gethsemane, Levine brings forward aspects and details that open doors for beginners and we as seasoned readers of the Bible.  She shows how the text raises ethical and spiritual questions for the reader, and how we all face risk in our Christian experience.”  Here is a breakdown of the study:

  • March 6 – Jerusalem: Risking Reputation
  • March 13 – The Temple: Risking Righteous Anger
  • March 20 – Teachings: Risking Challenge
  • March 27 – The First Dinner: Risking Rejection
  • April 3 – The Last Supper: Risking the Loss of Friends
  • April 10 – Gethsemane: Risking Temptation

Children will have a special study during Lent as they hear and experience the Easter story through the lens of science!  Four science experiments will help children connect and better understand some of the events of Holy Week, including Palm Sunday, Peter’s denial, the death of Jesus, and Jesus’ Resurrection.

We encourage everyone to RSVP by calling the church office or emailing Lydia Woods no later than the Monday before each Wednesday study.  You may also register for multiple Wednesdays, just let us know which Wednesdays you will be attending.
