Adult Education Bible Study

Dr. Osvaldo Vena will continue the study of the Gospel of Mark which began last spring. Osvaldo is a professor of New Testament at Garrett Evangelical Theological Seminary, and author of Jesus, Disciple of the Kingdom: Mark's Christology for a Community in Crisis as well as a member of our congregation. Osvaldo has described Jesus as "the disciple par excellence of the kingdom of God, a model for our daily, contemporary journey as God's people." The class, which meets in Room 213 at 9:15am each Sunday, is invited to explore the meaning and context of passages that constantly yield surprises even though they seem so well known to us.

Due to scheduling conflicts, the class will take a break from meeting on September 23 and 30 and begin again on Sunday, October 7.

New participants are always welcome.
