Names for the MessiahNames for the Messiah

November 27 – December 18
Location: Room 204
Facilitators: Chris Tuttle and Heather Ferguson

In Isaiah 9:6, a divine utterance is given to us using four royal titles: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace. “Names for the Messiah” ponders each royal designation and how the people understood it then, how Jesus did or did not fulfill the title, and how Christians interpret Jesus as representative of that title.

Christians have claimed from the beginning that Jesus was the Messiah foretold in the Old Testament. In this study, best-selling author Walter Brueggemann tackles the questions: “What were these expectations?” and “Did Jesus fulfill them?”

This class will also be offered on Wednesdays in Room 105 from 12-1pm, November 30 through December 21. It will be facilitated by Betty Berghaus and Natalie Wolf. Feel free to bring a bag lunch.

December 7 Update: The remaining sessions of the Wednesday class have been cancelled.
