Unknown Sayings of Jesus

Begins Sunday, January 9


The title expresses the intent to acquaint members of the class with the dozens of gospels on papyrus that have been recovered from the sands of Egypt in the last 100 years.  In a number of cases, these gospels preserve sayings of Jesus that have the clear ring of authenticity.  But the title also suggests that many of the sayings of Jesus found in our canonical gospels are "unknown" in the deeper sense that their "truth claim" is not fully apprehended. This class, taught by Dr. Larry Welborn, will meet virtually via Zoom beginning at 11:30am. The Zoom link will be available each week in the Westminster Notes.

What’s Unique to Luke

Begins Sunday, January 9, 11:20 a.m., Fellowship Hall

Two of Jesus’ most famous and beloved parables—The Good Samaritan and The Prodigal Son—are found only in Luke’s Gospel.  In this class, led by Richard Baker, we will discuss these two parables, along with other material unique to Luke, to see what all of it tells us about Luke’s Gospel and about our faith.  Bring your Bibles!
