Bible Study Group – update June 2021

Our study of the wonderful Gospel of St John had to be curtailed and we have been waiting patiently to recommence. It was during our 2020 Lent study that our meetings were suspended though we were able to meet between lockdowns in a limited way.

One of the reasons John’s Gospel is so special is because it is a “reflective” view of the life of Christ being written long after the events it records. The gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke are referred to as the synoptic Gospels because they include many of the same stories, often in a similar sequence and in similar or sometimes identical wording. They stand in contrast to John, whose content is largely distinct.

Our plan, God willing, is to restart at Chapter 9 with the thrilling account of the healing by Jesus of the man born blind. At the time of writing, it is hoped restrictions will be lifted on 19th July and accordingly our plan is to meet at The Honywood, Hall Road on Wednesday 1st September 10.30 a.m. This coincides with when the children will begin their Autumn school term.

With sadness we record the passing of Jane LaRoche in January. Jane enjoyed our study sessions and supported them whenever she was able.
