The Last Sunday after the Epiphany
Adult Forum: “Paul, Jesus and James” On the one hand, there are broad ranging similarities between Jesus and Paul that you would expect from two 1st century apocalyptic Jews. On the other hand, there are also a number of striking differences between the two. We have seen a good deal of diversity in early Christianity. The different Gospels have different portrayals of Jesus and there appears to be discrepancies among them. Join us following the 8:00 a.m. service in Saint Mary’s Chapel.
