Jesus' Parables as Subversive Speech

Lenten Bible Study
Wednesdays, March 7, 14, and 21, 6:30 p.m.

In our joint Lenten study and fellowship with New Life Church of God in Christ, we work together to understand Jesus’ parables as might those who heard them from Him. Most were poor and exploited peasants living in desperate situations, but ones they had no inkling they could change. Jesus’ stories were meant to awaken them to the oppression under which they lived and to help them imagine God-inspired alternatives. We will do some detective work to uncover these original intentions and meanings of the parables. We will also discuss what they can teach us about injustice and faithful action today. Plymouth member, Rev. Dr. David Wheeler will facilitate our studies. We meet at Plymouth.
