RL-02 Video Sample - Lent: Dying, Rising, and Living Anew

Return To RL-02 Section Home

By Dr. Rck Lowery

This Lecture explores the Hebrew Bible lections for Lent in the Revised Common Lectionary, Year C, beginning with the alternate suggested reading for Ash Wednesday (Isaiah 58) and ending with the Fifth Sunday in Lent. Brief video lectures will reflect on each week’s text from the Hebrew Bible, placing it in its broader historical, social, political, and theological context. Lectures for the Sundays in Lent will be followed by a brief conversation between Rick and the Rev. Linda McRae, senior pastor of Central Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Indianapolis. These conversations will explore connections between the Hebrew Bible lection and the gospel reading and begin to think about how these texts might be preached. Class participants will have the opportunity to discuss the texts in online forums and weekly conference calls with Dr. Lowery.
