Rethinking Heaven, the Resurrection, and the Mission of the Church
A 6-session study by Biblical scholar N.T. (Tom) Wright
Christian HOPE as the anchor for
both eternal life and life right now on earth is the underlying theme of this study.
Two questions come up: “What are we waiting for here in our earthly lives?” and “What are we going
to do about it in the meantime?”
The class starts with coffee and prayer every Sunday at 9:30 a.m. in the lounge of Jehovah Lutheran Church
with room around the table for anyone who’d like to drop in.
The lesson includes a 17-minute DVD presentation by
Wright and class interaction/digging into scripture. Wright says of this study, “It is my prayer that you will see
Jesus inviting you to experience and extend hope in this world, and that you will feel him walking at your side along the way.
Lesson 1: Hope for the World
Lesson 2: The Hope of the Resurrection
Lesson 3: The Hope of Heaven
Lesson 4: The Hope of Jesus’ Second Coming
Lesson 5: The Hope of Salvation
Lesson 6: The Hope of the Church
Dr. Wright’s bestselling book Surprised by Hope
is the basis of this course. Both his book and this
course will help one to gain an exciting vision of God’s final new creation and
how it can transform your
life right now. Everyone welcome!
Enter the Thomas Street door and take a right to the lounge.
