Want to Join a Bible Study?

Pastor Alexa will be leading a six week Bible Study, guided by the book Signs and Wonders.

When: Tuesdays at 5:30pm starting January 10th. Where: First UMC Olympia, Room-TBD, and on Zoom!

In Signs and Wonders: A Beginner’s Guide to the Miracles of Jesus, Amy-Jill Levine, Professor of New Testament studies and Bible Study author, explores selected miracles of Jesus in historical and theological context. For each miracle, she discusses not only how past witnesses would have understood the events, but also how today’s readers can draw meaning from Jesus’s words and actions.

Chapter topics include:
  • Giving sight to the blind: Metaphors of understanding (Mark 8, John 9)
  • “Take up your pallet and walk” (the paralyzed man): On the role of caregivers
  • A bleeding woman and a dead girl: The importance of women’s bodies
  • Walking on water and stilling the storm: Ecological readings of the Gospels
  • The feeding of the 5,000 (or more): The centrality of bread
  • The raising of Lazarus: Taking death seriously
