The Gospel of John: A Cosmic Perspective
The symbol which represents the Gospel of John is the eagle — a noble winged creature of the air. It is a perfect choice for a gospel which, from the opening sentence, places Jesus’s life and ministry in a cosmic perspective. For John, Jesus is first and foremost the cosmic Christ, who was with God before human time and space began. Join us each month as we study this gospel, giving special attention to the stories which only appear in John.
Please join us on the second Tuesday of each month from 10:30am – 11:30am in the Harvey Room. The specific readings within each book will be announced in advance of each meeting. Please bring your Bible to each gathering. We will also be meeting on mostly Wednesday evenings from 7-8pm (expect where indicated below during Advent and Lent) in Room 2.
