Academy Class: First Light- Jesus and the Kingdom

January 6 - February 10, 9:30 - 10:30 am

First Light: Jesus and the Kingdom. Why did Jesus happen when he happened? Why the tiny villages around the Lake? Why the confrontations in Jerusalem? Why then? Why there? What were the priorities of Jesus' proclamation of the Kingdom? In this dvd-based series, noted biblical scholars Marcus Borg and John Dominic Crossan go "on location" throughout Galilee and Jerusalem to explore Jesus’ life and ministry. They argue that the Kingdom of God is a present reality distinct from and often opposed to other kingdoms of our world. John Clark will lead this class. (Meets in the Fellowship Room)
