Life of the Church
SUNDAY, JANUARY 22, 2023
Membership reaffirmation, intended to be completed annually, is important because it serves as a meaningful reminder of the commitments we have made to one another before the Lord, and because it helps us—amid the dynamic and ever-changing context of Boston—to keep our membership roll up to date. Knowing who are active members is critical for understanding our shepherding needs and relevant for decision-making in many areas. We are asking all members to reaffirm or update their membership status this month via the survey linked below.
Members were sent a letter from Mark Booker about reaffirmation via email earlier today. If you are a member and didn’t receive that email, you can read Mark’s letter here. Also, if you didn’t receive the email it means we don’t have the right email address for you! If that’s the case, please email [email protected] with your updated email address.
Members can fill out the survey here.
New Testament Palestinian Names: Christian Formation Class
SUN, FEB 19 | after all services | TBD
Data Science Perspective on New Testament Palestinian Names – New Affirmation, New Insights
A database of several thousand names of Palestinian Jewish men and women around the time of Jesus was recently published, allowing New Testament scholars to compare New Testament data against this database. Their findings affirm the historical accuracy of the Gospels and Acts, statistically speaking. Such study of names also enable us to know more about some New Testament characters including Cleopas, Joanna, Paul, Thomas, Jesus’ family, and others. Dr. David Tam will be presenting a lecture on this new affirmation and insight SUN, FEB 19, after all three services. Dr. Tam, a former Gordon College Bible professor, studied New Testament and Judaism at Duke University after receiving the M. Div. degree from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.
Location TBD. Please register using the button below.
