TQQ: Can This Be the Son of God?
- Course Dates: Tue 1 March 2016, 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
In the ancient world one way of conveying the conviction of a person’s specialness was to tell stories about his/her birth, and two of the Gospels do just that.
Each in its own way majors on the idea of Messianic Sonship, and both leave behind clues as to how that conviction was achieved. We will investigate Matthew 1-2 and Luke 1-2 and begin to see how the potentially related ideas of Messiahship and Sonship can be detected in the self-awareness of Jesus himself.
