Exploring the New Testament

'Exploring the New Testament’
A series of discussion evenings

Weekly from Tuesday 28 November, 8pm
Christ Church, Esher

Over the past year we’ve held a series of evenings to consider the relevance of the Old Testament and the Gospels to our lives today. This Advent we’ll finish out tour of the Bible by looking at the remainder of the Bible – the Letters of Paul, the Acts of the Apostles and the Book of Revelation. We’ll explore what these very different writings tell us about the experience and developing faith of the church in the years after Jesus’s death, resurrection and ascension. We’ll consider how, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, the new Christian communities came to understand their role in building the Kingdom of God in the often hostile world of the first century. We’ll reflect on how these ‘voices’ complement one another and started to create the tradition of faith which we still share today.

If this sounds intriguing, do come along. We’ll meet in Christ Church on three Tuesday evenings at 8pm. There’ll be a short and provocative introduction to get us thinking, and then over light refreshments we’ll dig deeper. We’ll suggest some questions for starters, but you may well have other things you’d like to talk about.

Our first session will be at 8pm on Tuesday 28 November when we’ll look at Paul’s First Letter to the Corinthians. We’ll try to get alongside Paul as he wrestled with helping his newly founded church live together in unity and love in the midst of their Jewish and pagan neighbours.
