Hourglass Bible Study

The Gospel of Matthew – Sundays, Sept. 12 – Dec. 19, 4:30-5:30 PM

This fall, the Hourglass Bible Study group will read the gospel of Matthew, looking with fresh eyes at these familiar verses and contemplating how this book adds to the earlier gospel written by Mark.  We will meet via zoom from 4:30 to 5:30 each Sunday evening, beginning on September 12 and ending December 19.  We especially invite those of you who have studied this book and the Bible in general to join us and add your insights to the conversation, for every member of the group is a teacher.  We also especially invite those of you who have little experience with the Bible, because your fresh eyes and observations help us see these scriptures anew.


The structure of the one-hour class, as in the past, will begin with a discussion of the previous week’s readings and the group’s initial reading of the current week’s passage. That will be followed by period of quiet reflection, sharing of our reflections and questions, and a discussion of what we want to explore in the upcoming week. Then, in the following class, we will share what we learned.
