The Gospel of Luke is a rich, inviting, and expansive description of the life and ministry of Jesus of Nazareth. This course offers an overview of some major themes of the Gospel of Luke as well as a close look at the distinctive ways in which Luke understands Jesus. In 2019, the Gospel of Luke will be the main focus of the cycle of Sunday morning readings that many churches use. This course is designed to be an introduction to the Gospel for those who have no prior background or a refresher for those who want to prepare for the coming year. It is meant for lay people and ordained people, for those who will preach sermons in the coming year and those who will listen to them. It is meant for individuals who wish to join the online classroom from the comfort of their own home, or groups that wish to gather to learn together. There is no required reading (except the gospel itself) and no required papers. This is an opportunity to learn, grow, and prepare for another year in the life of the church.
The course meets online on Tuesday evenings from 7.30 to 9pm, beginning on October 23 and ending on November 20. The cost is $75 per connection (or $50 for members of our Corporation). We encourage groups to meet to learn together. If needed, clergy can receive a certificate for continuing education credit.
