CL.011 Emmanuel: God with Us…From the Manger to the Temple

Taught by Rev. Dr. Rodger Nishioka, co-pastor. 6:30-8 p.m. Wednesdays, Dec. 6, 13, Rooms 132/133.

The story of God coming to be with us in Jesus Christ begins with the announcements to Mary and Joseph and then after Jesus is born, moves to the temple where Jesus is presented. Together, these scenes show us the identity of Jesus and the role he is to play in the world. In these two sessions, we will explore how the story of the incarnation is made complete by Simeon and Anna seeing Jesus in the temple and further, how Jesus’ being “lost” in the temple as a 12 year-old is part of the incarnation story, too.
