Getting beneath The skin of the Gospels

Trevor Dennis is leading a course on the Gospels this autumn at St Mary's Handbridge Chester — making use of research he has done for a new book which SPCK will be publishing early next year. Everyone will be most welcome. One purpose of the sessions will be to raise funds for the exciting St Mary's Centre project. St Mary's Church plans to replace their rather old church hall with a new building which could much better serve the needs of the whole community. There will be no tickets for Trevor's talks, no entrance charge but a chance on each evening to make a donation towards the project.

All the sessions will take place in the existing church hall behind the church. There is parking behind the hall or on the road in front of the church.

September 22 7:30 PM The banana up the sleeve. What happens when we shift the spotlight? The gospel writers keep their eyes fixed on Jesus. What happens when we shift our gaze and focus on some of the people who encountered him? The first part of the title of the session will be explained.
September 29 7:30 PM Were Jesus closest disciples women? The Gospels themselves encourage us to ask that question. We will attempt an answer.
October 6 7:30 PM does God have favourites? A good deal in the Bible suggests he does but we will see how Jesus challenges that notion in the parable of the two brothers (commonly known as the parable of the prodigal son). The parable holds many surprises.
October 13 7:30 PM Does God sit on the throne or on a mat on the ground? Jesus is the man who shows us God and all the Gospels claim he was a king. But did Jesus himself ever play that role? More surprises.

Each session will stand alone, so if you can only make one or two of them, don't worry, you will still be most welcome.
