The Friday Bible Study

The Sunday Gospel: An Ancient Story Retold

Fridays, 12 noon (Beginning Friday, April 24)

Lead by: Thom Nealssohn and Fr. Drew

Meeting type: Zoom Discussion

Zoom Link:


Sometimes when we hear an old familiar story retold, we miss its nuance and depth. To help us hear again the ancient story of Jesus, we will explore the Sunday Gospel through the lens of Clarence Jordon’s Cotton Patch Bible.  Founder of Koinonia Farms and inspiration of Millard Fuller, Jordan also wrote The Cotton Patch Gospel as paraphrase of the New Testament set in the American south. Set alongside our customary translations of the Gospel of Christ, Jordan’s re-telling will help us to read and hear the ancient story with new ears for today.


Co-led by Thom Nealssohn and Fr. Drew, we will explore the upcoming Sunday Gospel as it will be read on Sunday alongside the Jordan's modern translation.
