Holy Family Passionist Retreat Center – Bible Study
Bible Study: Gospel of John
Saturdays, March 14, 2020 to May 16, 2020*
9:30 to 11:30 a.m.
In this 8-week course, we will explore the symbolism and spirituality of the Fourth Gospel as well as the Christology that underlies it, and we will see how this Gospel can be a source of strength and nourishment in our own lives of faith. The community to which this text was first addressed will become our friends, as will the characters John uses to bring about the gradual revelation of the identity of Jesus. The depth of this Gospel writer’s theology is stunning yet, at the same time, extremely simple. It is a text “ever ancient, ever new.” We will have a culminating lunch on May 16.
* There will be no class on April 11 and May 9.
