“In the beginning was the Word…”John 1:1 NRSV
That is how the Gospel according to John launches into an account of Jesus’s life that is markedly different than the stories that we get from Matthew, Mark, and Luke. John’s narrative is used every year in The Episcopal Church on Christmas Day and throughout Holy Week. This Epiphany (January and February in 2020), let’s see what John has to say between the prologue and the crucifixion!
While John’s gospel narrative is beautiful and inviting, it also presents us with challenges as we read this text in the contemporary era. The compelling narrative of John’s gospel story will invite us to go deeper in our own questions of faith and to sit with John’s perspective on Christ.
When you register (using the form at the bottom of this page), you will receive a daily email from Church of the Epiphany with the reading for each day of the season of Epiphany! The emails are using the New Revised Standard Version (NRSV) of the Bible, but you are invited to read the daily readings from your preferred translation.
Wednesday Discussion Group
The first discussion group is on Wednesdays at 11:00am in the Farmhouse at Church of the Epiphany. You are also invited to join us for Holy Eucharist at 10:00am before our discussion begins. The Wednesday discussion group will be using a resource from Episcopal Migration Ministries to guide and shape our discussion of this beautiful gospel story.
