Theology Quest and Questions  March & April
  •  Jesus Lives!
    It is argued that the resurrection of Jesus belongs outside the sphere of history. But the claims of the early Christians to have ‘seen’ Jesus a few days after his death or to have discovered an open and empty tomb certainly belong within history. Tuesday 13 March, 7-9pm Details
  • Before and Beyond the Damascus Road
    To begin the study of Paul is to be faced with a battery of questions, including: how influential on him were the Christian groups that already existed before whatever it was that happened on the road to Damascus? Tuesday 17 April, 7-9pm Details
  • The Question of God
    Following his ‘conversion’ Paul had to rethink everything, even the question of God, so we consider how his new thinking related to other people’s thoughts about God at the time and earlier. Tuesday 24 April, 7-9pm Details
