Coffee Chat: Entering the Passion of Jesus

For six weeks during Lent, we will engage in a new study.

Amy-Jill Levine is a Jewish scholar, teaching New Testament at Vanderbilt Divinity School. In this program, she delves into the history and literature surrounding the last days of Jesus’ life. From Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem to his prayerful agony in Gethsemane, Levine brings forward aspects and details that open doors for beginners as well as seasoned readers of the Bible. Our church’s youth and adults will join together for this study.

We will begin together by watching an introduction video by Amy-Jill Levine. Youth and Adults will split into different groups for discussion.

This study is based on Amy-Jill Levine’s book with the same title. If you would like to support a Black-owned business, you can order the book from here.
