Please join us for a Four Week Bible Study —-
The Challenge of Paul
Paul is one of Christianity’s most impactful, yet most debated and misunderstood figures. 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.
During these four weeks we will search for the historical Paul, decide whether Paul is an appealing or appalling apostle, learn how to read a Pauline letter, better understand the Romanization of a radical, and determine the difference between Jewish covenant and the Roman empire.
For those of you who joined us as we studied Crossan’s “The Challenge of Jesus,” the format will be very similar … along with an informative DVD, we will have time for discussion and to ask questions that will help us draw our own meaning from Dr. Crossan’s presentations. But you don’t need to have been in that study group to join this one!
We will meet on Wednesday afternoons at 1:00 p.m. on the following dates:
Please call the church office to register (715)479-8501 or sign up in the office. If there are those who would prefer an evening time, please let me know and we will try to schedule a second class.
I hope you will join us on this exciting adventure!
Blessings, Pastor Mary Anne
