Come to POP’s Fellowship Hall every Thursday night, March 14th through April 11th, for a sampling of soups and breads and then feast on the Word of the Lord! This year’s Soup & Scripture is titled What Did Jesus Look Like, and Why Does It Matter? — What did Jesus Christ look like? This is a question that has puzzled and tantalized Christians from the beginning. As God incarnate, Jesus had a physical form. We know he walked the earth in Palestine 2,000 years ago. But gospel accounts provide no physical description. No ancient portraits of Jesus have survived, nor are likely to be found. Yet the question persists. Did he look anything like us? Did he resemble other Galileans of his time and place? Could divinity be read in his face? In this five-part Lenten study, Associate Pastor Dottie LaPenta and Elder Mark Weadon will examine images of Jesus through the ages and lead a discussion on how varied depictions of Jesus in art, literature, and cinema reveal a great deal about us and our understanding of “God With Us.”
Come for a delicious meal of soup and bread at 6:00 p.m., and then join in the study and discussion from 6:30–7:30 p.m.!
*Childcare will be provided, and if you wish to be a soup donor, please contact the church office at 410-721-2313.
