This is an online-only event.
Come and join us to explore the world of Jesus.
Gordon has led group pilgrimages to the Holy Land for over thirty-five years and led training tours for future pilgrimage group leaders. The experience of this has led him to develop ‘The World of Jesus’ as a resource for those who would like to gain a deeper insight into the context of Jesus’ ministry. Each week Gordon will focus on a particular geographical area of the Holy Land, so we can explore the landscape, the historical background, and the political, economic, religious and social setting that pertained in the time of Jesus.
This course will run for 8 sessions over 9 weeks, on Zoom, and will be Hosted by the Scargill Community.
The pattern for each session will be:
– a welcome followed by a talk from Gordon using slides for up to an hour
– 10 minute break before a time in breakout groups to reflect on questions
– Coming back together as one group before we end the session and say ‘goodnight’ to one another
