Block 4: Fridays: Mornings Only
Feb. 22 – March 15, 2019
9:30 am to 11:30 am
Facilitator: Rick Klein
First Christian mystics Junia, Priscilla, and Phoebe
Class Description: Who were these remarkable women who risked everything to spread the Christian message? And how did Paul really feel about these women he called his co-workers in Christ Jesus?
In Block 4 of Befriending the Mystics: St. Paul’s letter to the Romans contains the names of many women who were an integral part of the early Christian communities. Building on recent biblical scholarship, we’ll take a journey into their first century Mediterranean world for insights into their extraordinary lives as the first generation of Christian mystics.
Be inspired by their stories as we travel back in time to be in the company of courageous women; the first Christian mystics Junia, Priscilla, and Phoebe along with their companion Paul.
