Light of the World A Beginner’s Guide to Advent
In Light of the World: A Beginner’s Guide to Advent, author, professor, and biblical scholar Amy-Jill Levine explores the biblical texts surrounding the story of the birth of Jesus. Join her as she traces the Christmas narrative through the stories of Zechariah and Elizabeth, Mary, the journey to Bethlehem, and the visit from the Magi. These stories open conversations around connections of the Gospel stories to the Old Testament, the role of women in first-century Jewish culture, the importance of Mary’s visitation and the revolutionary implications of Mary’s Magnificat, the census and the stable, and the star of Bethlehem and the flight to Egypt. All are invited to dive deep into the history of the birth of Christ. Join for one or all the sessions as able. Participants are encouraged to get a copy of Dr. Levine’s book, “Light of the World” to read along with the 4 week DVD series. However, even without a copy of the book, all are welcome to join in all or any sessions as able.

She is an internationally renowned scholar, teacher, and author of numerous books. She is also the co-edito o the Jewish Annotated New Testament.
