The two sessions for this year's Christmas themed 101 will be very different from one another. The first session (December 9) will examine selections from Isaiah 7, 9, and 11. We'll consider how these prophetic scriptures have been reinterpreted by Christians for Advent. We will also study them for their original 8th century BC context. The second session (December 16) will focus on the surprise visits from God's angel to an unsuspecting to be expecting mother and her hard headed husband. Read Samson's origin story, and understand our hero better than ever before.
