The Apocryphal Gospels Class

December 28, 2018

The Reverend Mary Margaret Porter will lead this class on the Apocrypha, a large body of writings about the Bible and Jesus that cannot be found in the books in our pews or on our bookshelves. Many of these writings tell ancient stories about Jesus as a child and the beginnings of Christianity. Some may have been written by and about powerful women of the time.

In this series, learn why some books appear in the Bible and others do not, who decided what to include and what to leave out, how we know about these other writings and what we should think of them.

Classes will be at 10 a.m., during the Formation hour, in the Pattie Cole Room (S203). The final three classes will be:

  • February 3 – The Ministry Gospels
  • February 10 – The Passion Gospels
  • February 17 – The Post-Resurrection Discourse Gospels
