What the Gospels Really Teach About Jesus’ Birth

Sundays, December 7-21

Based on work by Marcus J. Borg and John Dominic Crossan, this course will explore how history and sentimentalism have biased our reading of the nativity story.  By reading well-known scriptures in their original context, the birth of Christ can be even richer and more challenging that we ever imagined.  This class will be led by Rev. Nicole Bates.
