Institute of Advanced Theology Lecture Series with Bruce Chilton

The Institute of Advanced Theology will host the 2016 Autumn Luncheon Lecture Series with Bruce Chilton at St. John, the Evangelist Church located at 1114 River Road, Barrytown, NY. The Lecture Series will begin on Friday, October 7 and will continue on October 14, 21, 28, and November 4th.

A brief description follows:

Herod the Great
Herod and his family defined Israel at the start of the Common Era. They shaped the political and cultural climate in which Jesus lived and the Gospels were written, extending the Temple of Jerusalem to the point that it became a pilgrimage site for Jewish *and* gentile tourists all over the world. They also inspired a reaction against their rule in the bedrock of Judeo-Christian philosophy, which warns against mixing politics and religion—from “render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s” to key teachings in the Mishnah, the foundational document of Rabbinic Judaism.

The presentation will begin at 12:30 p.m. followed by a question and answer period. Lunch will begin at noon and consist of soup, bread, dessert, and a beverage. The lunch will cost $7.00.  Lunch reservations are required by emailing or by calling 845-758-7279.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call 845-758-7279. Thank you.
Time: 12:30 pm
