First Persons Class, Part 2     July 10, 17, 24 and 31

Our summer sessions this year are a continuation of the very popular class held last year.  It is based on the study by well-known theologian, Matt Rawle entitled “First Persons”.  Each class is based on his idea of the type of people who might have attended the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.  Each week the new role is defined, historical data about these careers is discussed and what might have been their attitudes about Jesus and his crucifixion.  Though the author has created these characters, the reenactment facilitates interesting class discussions about this culmination of Jesus’ time on earth. 
First person narratives have a unique power in teaching.
Our July Wednesday “First Persons” stories include:

The Tax Collector—Matt 9:9-13, Mark2:13-17, Luke7:34, 15:1-2, 19:1-10

Zebedee’s Steward–John 2:1-11

The Olive Presser—Luke10:38-42, John11:1-47, 12-1-9
