The Apocrypha

How do we get from the restoration of Jerusalem at the end of the Old Testament, to Jerusalem under Roman control at the start of the New Testament?  What happened in between?  That story is laid out in the period of triumph and conflict covered in the material we call the Apocrypha.  

 

In these books you will find wisdom literature, witness, historical romance, liturgy and theology, all dealing with the struggles of Judaism against the influences of Greek Hellenism.  Join us on Wednesday nights as our Rector, Fr. JD Brown leads on a study and discussion of these texts and their fascinating history.  

We gather for a potluck supper at 6:30 pm.  The class follows at 7pm.  There is child care and there are age appropriate activities for the entire family.
