10/11 Wednesday

If it’s Wednesday, it’s time for Understanding Christianity. Material that allows you to learn about the history of Christianity the way historians do, online, from the comfort & privacy of your computer or mobile device. This week we feature Professor Dale Martin of Yale University, Lecture 9, The Gospel of Luke. If you want to simply enjoy the content, that’s great, but we welcome anyone that also wants to participate in the online discussion to join us.
