Winter Faith Seeking Understanding Classes

Categories: BurlPres,News

From January 14 through February 25, we will have a seven-week series on the Early Christian Church. these classes will be led by Professors and Presbyterian ministers greg Love and Eugene Park, of the San Francisco Theological Seminary.

In Professor Love’s classes, starting on January 14, we will learn about its leaders and their teachings on Jesus, the Trinity, salvation, etc. We will also explore how the church’s teachings were altered by the conversion of emperor Constantine and his adoption of Christianity as the state religion in 325 CE.

In Professor Park’s classes, starting on February 11, we will discover the Jewish roots of the early church in Palestine, as well as the influences from surrounding cultures, especially the Greeks. We will focus on how Greek and Jewish ideas interacted in a powerful way to formulate the early Church’s core beliefs.
