Reading the Stories of Jesus


with Deacon John Tugman

Calendar Mar 2, 2021 at 10:30 am, runs for 10 weeks

Shared reading and discussion of the Gospels, this semester Matthew and John. We will read the entirety of each gospel, pausing for discussion after each chapter, typically covering five or six chapters per class. The priority is the shared reading of each gospel so that we hear the total story in a concentrated dose, rather than just one episode at a time as happens in most church services. Bring your own Bible, any translation. Get to know Jesus better, whatever your current relationship with him. A great way for someone who does not know the Jesus story well to be introduced to him. The course focuses on the story, not religious doctrine; all Christians, non-Christians, and non-believers welcomed and respected.
