Public invited to study of Luke
The Three Voices Presbyterian Church have begun a fall Bible study based on Christian author Michael Card’s book – Luke, A Gospel of Amazement. According to Card, from start to finish, the book of Luke is filled with amazement.
Attendees will be able to experience the life and ministry of Jesus from this Gospel and see why those who met him were astonished by their encounter, from the shepherds at the nativity to the disciples at the empty tomb.
The study introduces attendees to Luke the historian and imagines his life as a gentile, a doctor and a slave. Card explores Luke’s compelling account of this dynamic rabbi who astounded his hearers with parables and paradoxes.
Studies are held every Sunday morning at 8:45 a.m. During September, Bible studies will be held at Cochran Memorial Presbyterian Church in Oneida Castle; in October, classes will be held at the First Presbyterian Church of Verona.
The public is warmly welcomed to attend any of these sessions. There is no charge for these studies. Both churches are handicapped-accessible.
What might Luke have experienced as he interviewed eyewitnesses of Jesus? What leads Luke to focus on the marginalized and the unlikely? Why does Luke include certain details that the other Gospel writers omit? Join Michael Card in the work of opening heart and mind to “A Gospel of Amazement.”
