“The First Christmas”- Leaders: Matt Christenson, Bobby Williamson, Jim Miller
Most of us consider the story of Christmas the most loved and familiar Bible story. There is much more to the story than what we hear on Christmas Eve each year. What do the Gospels really teach about Jesus’ birth? Participants in the class, based on Marcus Borg and John Dominick Crossan’s book, The First Christmas, will have the opportunity to explore the nativity story in the context of both the first and twenty-first centuries. Come and discover the riches and challenges of exploring this familiar story in its original context. The class begins Sunday, October 30 and continues through Advent. It will meet in Room 65/66 at 9:50 on Sunday mornings.
