Light of the World: A Beginner’s Guide to Advent
Co-sponsored by Christ Church Cathedral and St. Hildegard’s Sanctuary.
In this four week study, author, professor, and biblical scholar Amy-Jill Levine explores the biblical texts surrounding the story of the birth of Jesus in her book, “Light of the World: A Beginner’s Guide to Advent.” She traces the Christmas narrative through the stories of Zechariah and Elizabeth, Mary, the journey to Bethlehem, and the visit from the Magi. These stories open conversations around connections of the Gospel stories to the Old Testament, the role of women in first-century Jewish culture, the importance of Mary’s visitation and the revolutionary implications of Mary’s Magnificat, the census and the stable, and the star of Bethlehem and the flight to Egypt.
