ProgramsVirtual Programs

Join us as we welcome Fr. Robert "Bob" Beck to Shalom! Fr. Bob will present a series on the stories of Jesus gleaned from his study of John's Gospel. The sessions will draw on his current study of the narrative of John’s gospel. This approach
looks at the story in its successive moments—what starts the narrative going, its mounting tension or rising action, its climactic turning point, and its resolution. The three sessions will be looking at the following moments in John’s narrative.

This is a 3-part series offered in-person or virtually. $12 per person. Please register online at or call Shalom. The registration deadline is Monday, October 9.

Session 2:
Lazarus and his sisters. After many comings and goings to and from Jerusalem, the central arena of action in this gospel, Jesus leaves for the place of John’s baptizing. It is as if the story goes back to the beginning and threatens to stay there. The sisters of Lazarus prevail upon him to return to Jerusalem. Both Jesus and his disciples know that returning realistically is trading his life for that of Lazarus, for the opposition is intensifying. His return is the “Gethsemane” moment, and climax, in this gospel. The final decision to accept the consequences is as pivotal as the temple's first challenge. Together we learn that Jesus’ resistance is nonviolent.
