Wine, Women, and Song: Reading the Gospel of Luke

an Epiphany zoom course by Dr. Sylvia Keesmaat

The songs imagine a radical new world. The table always has unexpected guests and more space. The women risk all to follow Jesus to the grave and beyond. Could this be God’s new community of welcome and generosity bringing healing to the world?

Pay what you can. Suggested amounts: $150 (full), $100 (reduced), $50 (discounted). Full scholarships are also available. Please enquire.

Tuesdays 2:30pm - 4:30pm EST

Jan 11, 18, 25, Feb 1, 8, 15, 2022 via Zoom.

In denominations that follow the Revised Common Lectionary, Luke is the gospel that will be emphasized in 2022. This course will be fruitful for those who will be preaching from Luke this year, whether ordained or lay leaders. 

That said, this course is for anyone who seeks a deeper understanding of the Bible. All are welcome, regardless of denominational or religious affiliation. No prior knowledge of the Bible is necessary.

Course Format and Requirements 

Each class will run on zoom for two hours with a 5 minute break half-way through. Although the bulk of the class will consist of Sylvia teaching about biblical passages, questions will also be pose questions and  discussion encouraged through the chat. Participants will also be able to post questions in the chat which Sylvia will monitor and answer. Powerpoint will be used periodically to show biblical texts and illustrations.

Each class will be recorded. Students who miss a class can request a link to watch the recording. The recordings will not be posted in any other context.

There are no assignments and no required reading for this course, although suggestions for further reading will be made as the course progresses.
