Early Christianity & Heresies (4 weeks)

Beginning January 5 at 9:30 a.m., Samuel Jang will teach a new adult ed class. The first several hundred years of Christianity seem strange and distant to us today. Yet, much of the faith we profess was clarified during these times through struggle and debate. In a sense, it can be helpful to know what something is by understanding what it is not. This class seeks to understand the motivations, aims, and mechanics of Early Christians and the heresies and heretics they were combating; to give us the tools to dispel heresies we see even today, such that we are faithful in the Christian faith we profess. Topics include the Biblical canon, the body, and Jesus Christ.
