New Thought Bible Study Book Group | Saturdays, 9:30 - 10:45am (via Zoom)
For the curious, the doubtful and the wishful thinkers. Drop-ins always welcome.
Many people believe the best way to study the Bible is to read the Bible but maybe it’s not. Unity teaches that the Bible is the story of the evolution of consciousness; the changing awareness of humanity’s relationship with God and one another. The Fillmore’s (Unity’s founders) were more interested in the meaning behind the stories than whether the stories of the Bible were factual or not. Current biblical and archaeological scholarship offers us information that just wasn’t available a hundred years ago, or even fifty years ago.
Consider joining us for a thought provoking study of a heretical gospel - lost and now found. The story and teachings of Jesus as understood by Mary of Magdala were shocking to the men the canonical gospels call the disciples. Instead of Jesus being presented as the "son of man," the early 2nd century author of this gospel introduces us to the "child of true Humanity" that is present in everyone! Truly a gnostic gospel that whispers its alliance with our principles and traditions in Unity.
