Jesus: A Pilgrimage

November 10, 2017

6:00 P.M. - 9:00 P.M.

Fr. James Martin, S.J.

 

What can historical studies about first-century Palestine really teach us about Jesus of Nazareth?  How does the Risen Lord relate to the man who walked the dusty landscape of Galilee and Judea?  What does it mean to talk about the "Jesus of history" and the "Christ of faith"?  How do Jesus's human and divine nature work together?  Or, more to the point, who is Jesus?  Let Fr. James Martin, author of Jesus: A Pilgrimage help you encounter the one at the center of our faith. The evening includes book signing, dinner, presentation and discussion.
