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 offered in-person or virtually.$12 per person. Please register online at or call Shalom. The registration deadline is Monday, October 16.

Session 3:
Pilate and the High Priests. Pilate dominates this gospel much more than the others. It places him in a three-way contest with the High Priests and Jesus. Each pair, in turn, face off— Jesus and the High Priests, Jesus and  Pilate, Pilate and the High Priests. The last two ends in a futile stalemate while Jesus quietly moves toward his crucifixion, giving his life for his friends. The recent study of early civilization, The Dawn of Everything, by Graeber and Wengrow, helps to sort this out. The Easter stories, however, provide an alternative ending in which Jesus and his community prevail, and the opponents’ plans fail.
