Weekly News Update

Deans' Note | February 27, 2022

This Sunday we come to the culmination of our Epiphany Season as we hear the story of Jesus' transfiguration from Luke's Gospel and prepare for our Lenten journey. Join us online Tuesday evening for the burning of the palms in preparation for Lent, and join us the next day, Ash Wednesday, in person at noon or 6:30. These services will also be livestreamed. The quarterly newsletter comes out today (see the link in today's update) with many opportunities for prayer and study and especially this week, pray for peace in our war torn world.

Eternal God, in whose perfect kingdom no sword is drawn

but the sword of righteousness, no strength known but the

strength of love: So mightily spread abroad your Spirit, that

all peoples may be gathered under the banner of the Prince of

Peace, as children of one Father; to whom be dominion and

glory, now and for ever. Amen.

Meeting Jesus in the Gospel of Luke

"Singing with Mary"

Sunday, February 27, 2022 at 11:30 am

In-Person and Online

Take a deep dive into the Gospel of Luke, who we read throughout this liturgical year in our Sunday masses. How does Luke tell the story of Jesus? How is his story distinct, and how similar to the other writers who tell the story of Jesus? Like all tours, we will see the whole map, but pay particular attention to key places of interest. We will combine the study of the text with time to allow ourselves to meet the Jesus who speaks in a unique way through this telling of the Gospel.

Joel B. Green is Professor of New Testament Interpretation and Associate Dean for the Center of Advanced Theological Studies at Fuller Seminary. He received a PhD in New Testament Studies from the University of Aberdeen and has served on the faculty of several universities both in the U.S. and abroad. He has written or edited some 55 books, eight of which have won awards. He has a particular interest in the Gospel of Luke, including Discovering Luke (2021), Luke as Narrative Theologian (2020), Conversion in Luke-Acts: Divine Initiative, Human Cognition, and the People of God (2015) and The Gospel of Luke (1997), in the New International on the New Testament series, of which he also is the Editor.
