"The Challenge of Paul" Sunday Class
February 18 - March 18, 9:30 - 10:30 am
The Apostle Paul is perhaps the second-most important figure (after Jesus) in the development of the Christian church. Half of the New Testament is either about Paul or written by (or attributed to) him. In The Challenge of Paul, John Dominic Crossan gives us the benefit of his lifelong search for the Paul of history to create a new understanding that sheds new light on Paul and why he is more relevant than ever today. Crossan confronts our traditional understanding about Paul that seems to support anti-homosexuality, slavery, patriarchy, and the subjugation of women. This dvd-based class will be led by Pastor Steve Charnley.
