Wednesday Bible Study
June 12 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:30 pm on Wednesday, repeating indefinitely
You are invited to join Pastor Hudder, as he leads a study of the Gospel of Luke in the Kelsey Building each Wednesday from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. Here is a story that begins with an elderly couple (beyond child-bearing years) then quickly moves to an adolescent girl (not ready, at least by her own testimony, for child-bearing). Here is a Baptizer named John who, more so than in the other Gospels, encounters and engages people from a wide variety of social groups. Here is Jesus who, more so than the other Gospels, breaks social boundaries, embraces the outcasts and the unexpected, questions the status quo, and defines his ministry simple and graphically: “to let the oppressed go free.” Luke stresses issues of social and political significance – the plight of the poor and of women, the prejudices among social, economic, and ethnic groups, and the power structures evident in, with, and under social etiquette and social mores. In both structure and content, Luke sounds the call to liberation louder than any of the other Gospels. And that includes the call for others, including us, to get in on the action. Sign-up on the sheet in the Kelsey Building to reserve your copy of the Student Guide.
