Event Details

Guided by Amy-Jill Levine’s deep knowledge of the New Testament and strong storytelling skills in Entering the Passion of Jesus: A Beginner’s Guide to Holy Week, you are invited to journey through Lent reflecting on the Passion of Jesus as it is told in the gospels.

Jesus’ final days were full of risk. Every move he made was filled with anticipation, danger and the potential for great loss or great reward.

Jesus risked his reputation when he entered Jerusalem in a victory parade. He risked his life when he dared to teach in the Temple. His followers risked everything when they left behind their homes or anointed him with costly perfume. We take risks as we read and re-read these stories, finding new meanings and new challenges.
In Entering the Passion of Jesus: A Beginner’s Guide to Holy Week, author, professor and biblical scholar Amy-Jill Levine explores the biblical texts surrounding the Passion story. She shows us how the text raises ethical and spiritual questions for the reader, and how we all face risk in our Christian experience.

Led by The Rev. Dr. Glenn Chestnutt, we begin our study via zoom on Wednesday February 24 at 11:00 a.m. and continue for the consecutive weeks of Lent, ending in Holy Week. To register, get the zoom link and purchase a copy of the book please contact the church office on 514-842-3431 or email Office@standrewstpaul.com.
