Mapping the Gospels
8:45 a.m. to 9:45 a.m.
Zoom Meeting and Busey Conference Room
A unique approach to Bible study using Susanna Gunner's series "Mapping the Gospels." Books are available at the St. John's Cathedral Bookstore & Gift Shop. "
These 'maps' aim to deepen engagement with the Christian gospel. No prior knowledge is required, yet even for those who know the gospel well, there's something new to discover. In each pack are five maps. Unfolding each reveals a wide range of tools to help you navigate your way around a particular episode in the gospel. Music, art, and poetry are offered to stir the imagination and stimulate new insights. As well as links between the text under the spotlight and the Old Testament, connections are made with issues of our own time. Theologians from every age are drawn upon to enrich understanding and, as with all these other tools, to invite a personal response. In fact, space is set aside on each map for people to make their own mark, to add their own reflections, to become theologians themselves...and all this in just a piece of folded paper!"
