Bible Study: The Letters of John
- Date: Thursday, May 26, 2022
- Time: 10:30am–12:00pm
Join us on Thursdays as we begin a new study—the Letters of John (John 1, 2, 3). The Letters of John spoke to the emerging concerns of an early Christian community that cherished John’s Gospel. The Letters apply many of the themes of the gospel to new situations. In particular, the Elder, the author, who writes these short epistles, reminds readers that their love of God must be made concrete in the love they show their fellow Christians. At the same time, these texts demonstrate how the church dealt with theological disagreement and division. We have much to learn from them today to help us understand theological diversity and the struggle for church unity. Our guide will be Raymond Brown’s, The Gospel and Epistles of John: A Concise Commentary (Liturgical Press, 1998). Cost: $13. And a supplemental text will be C. S. Lewis’s classic The Four Loves.
Bible study will be both in-person and on Zoom.
