What happened to WNA? Wednesday Night Alive, or WNA, has been with us for many years. But how do you have Wednesday Night Alive on a Thursday or a Sunday? So, Abra Cadabra! WNA has transformed into Wellsprings of Wisdom (you can call it WOW if you want to. :-))
Now you can register for fabulous classes that take place on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sunday afternoons. Classes are $20 per session unless otherwise noted. As with WNA, Wellsprings of Wisdom is about fellowship, not fundraising. If you would like to attend but are unable to pay the full amount, please talk with Sid or Amy.
Why did Jesus happen when he happened? Why the confluence of the Baptism movement of John and the Kingdom movement of Jesus? Why the tiny villages around the Lake? Why the confrontations in Jerusalem? Why then? Why there?
Why were the titles of Caesar Augustus—Divine, Son of God, God from God, Lord, Redeemer, Liberator, and Savior of the World—taken from a Roman emperor on the Palatine hill and given to a Jewish peasant on the Palestine plain? Was it low lampoon or high treason? Either way, the Romans were not laughing.
What were the priorities of Jesus’ proclamation of the Kingdom? How was the status quo of Roman imperial theology subverted by this obscure Galilean whose message continues to indict empire today?
First Light is a 12-session DVD- and web-based study of the historical Jesus and the Kingdom of God with two of the world’s leading Jesus scholars on location throughout Galilee and Jerusalem.
This class meets every Thursday at 7 pm. For questions or for more information, contact Russ Harper at RussHarper@austin.rr.com.
