~~~The Parables of Jesus
The purpose of this course is to immerse ourselves into a hearing of Jesus’ parables from the perspective of First Century Palestine so that their radical demands for personal change can be heard anew, as if for the first time. The course will study select narrative parables of Jesus in the context of the cultural, societal, economic, political and religious background against which Jesus proclaimed the imminence of the coming of the Kingdom of God.
Time & Dates: 10;00 a.m.–12:00 p.m., Mondays-- July 11, 18, 25; Aug. 1, 8, 15, 2022
