The Bible tells a very adult story of Jesus' birth. Social outcasts and Gentiles were honored witnesses; a powerful king became fearful and murderous. This course explores these issues, and reexamines traditional Western assumptions about the first Christmas in the context of Middle Eastern customs and culture. An ideal study during Advent.
This course helps people critically reflect on the Christmas season's biblical text.
The study allows us to rethink the King of the Old Testament and the Servant King in the New Testament. It reveals the historical and cultural background of Jesus' birth and opens discussion on the way Scripture is interpreted.
Rev. Dr. Martin Overson
