Fall Bible Study: The Signs of Jesus in the Gospel According to John
October 24 @ 9:15 am - 10:30 am
One can conceive of a sign in a variety of ways – that thing which provides information to a traveler along the way (a sign on the road), those things which portend or predict or reflect in a cultural or societal context (the sign of the times). It is possible even to imagine the concept of a seed sown in the Earth just beginning to emerge as a sign of new life.
Unlike the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke (the synoptics), the Gospel of John does not present Jesus as working miracles, pe se. In this Gospel, we have signs (Greek; sémeion, σημεῖον), which properly understood point towards a deeper truth about both the action and the actor.
Join us for a ‘socially distanced’ Bible Study on the Seven (only seven?) Signs of Jesus in the Gospel According to John. We will start on-line, but if the time and trends permit, we might move to meet in person, perhaps outdoors beside Trinity House or next to Canterbury Hall.
