A Survey of the Life of Jesus, Session 8: “Showdown in Jerusalem” (Holy Week)

The video of the concluding session in our Summer “Survey of the Life of Jesus” (focused on the events of Holy Week in Jerusalem) here follows…

Tempted am I to put in writing a few reflections, including some corrective comments.  (For all the ways I try to be confident and competent on my feet, too many times I am that “tour guide” throwing out comments that I later wish I could adjust.)  Too, I’d like to define a final list of “implications for our daily living.”   (Here, I wish we’d had one last session just to process!)

Such posts are forthcoming — hopefully soon (while things are fresh on my mind)!  As always, though, a consideration for timing (and folks potentially wanting to engage this last session) has me posting materials here, now… and blogging a epilogue or two in the near future.

As always, there is a student teaching handout — this week, because of its focal import to the life of Jesus and our Christian faith, complemented by a “maps” supplement and a reading supplement (yours by clicking on each of the hyperlinks, below):

AMUMC, LoJ, Session 9, Holy Week & Easter (student-lecture handout)

AMUMC, LoJ, Session 9, Holy Week & Easter (supplemental reading)

AMUMC, LoJ, Session 9, Geography of Holy Week & Easter (supplemental maps)

And so, with one last final word of appreciation to Dr. Jim Fleming… and one last set of warnings to “seek simplicity but learn to distrust it” (Whitehead) and to “test the spirits”, I commend to you the video of this final session…
