Advent study: Light of the World by Amy-Jill Levine

Advent Study 2021

Join Pastor Christina for a four-week study during the season of Advent! We will study Light of the World by Amy-Jill Levine, a look at the Scriptures surrounding the birth of Jesus. The book is available for purchase online at Amazon as a paperback, ebook, or audiobook. The study will start on Wednesday, Dec. 1, and Thursday, Dec. 2.

There are two times and options to attend! Join in on Wednesdays at 7 pm on Zoom OR on Thursdays at 7 pm at the church (location TBD). (We will mask and take part in all COVID safety procedures!)

An internationally renowned scholar and teacher, Levine is Professor of New Testament and Jewish Studies at Vanderbilt Divinity School and the co-editor of the Jewish Annotated New Testament. We will explore the stories of Zechariah and Elizabeth, Mary, the journey to Bethlehem, and the visit of the Magi, making connections both to Old Testament stories and first-century Jewish culture.
