Eighth Annual Nostra Aetatate Lecture

Villa Maria Education and Spirituality Center

As knowledge of Paul’s social world has altered, so have reconstructions of the apostle’s mission and message. How did Paul think about the differences between Jews and non-Jews? (The key word here is ethnicity.) What kind of Jewish world did he inhabit? (The key word here is variety.) How did Paul process his experience of the risen Christ? (The key word here is apocalyptic.) How ‘monotheistic’ was ancient Jewish monotheism? (The key idea here is, It wasn’t.) Together in this lecture we will explore the ways in which current research on these four questions has led to a rethinking of Paul’s Jewish identity and of his concept of redemption in Christ. 

This virtual presentation is Co-Sponsored by Rev. George Balasko and is part of the Annual Nostra Aetate Lecture Series

Cost: Free will offering     Registration is required.

The Zoom link will be sent to all those who are registered on October 5, 2021.

Please be reminded of Bishop Persico’s guidelines for attending Mass:

• Both for their protection and that of others, the following are strongly encouraged to wear masks while in church:

     • Those not fully vaccinated and those who are more comfortable doing so.
     • Everyone regardless of their vaccination status in counties where the transmission rate is substantial or high, for as long as that situation persists.

• . It is recommended that those approaching for Communion should sanitize their hands before entering the line to receive Communion.

• Bishop Persico's words at the Town Hall Meeting: ‘I really, really encourage you to receive Communion in the hand, out of consideration for people at this moment it would be best to receive Communion in the hand. This is about charity.’
