Holy Grail Search Party: The Gospel According to Luke

November 22 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

HOLY GRAIL SEARCH PARTY is a religious text discussion group—like a Bible study gone rogue—where we can engage in theological exegesis using whatever critical approaches suit us. Looking at sacred texts from various traditions, we’ll attempt to decode them for symbolic meaning and spiritual/psychological insight (putting aside religious dogma, cultural preconceptions, and absurd literalism). We may also explore secondary texts from various interpretive disciplines.

***

This week we’ll discuss LUKE. We’ll consider how it’s informed by the prophesy in the Book of Daniel, as well as how it compares to the other synoptic gospels, Matthew and Mark.

Following that, we might either move to John, or possibly to another Old Testament book such as Kings, depending on the prevailing mood.
