This Sunday’s Service – From Jesus to Christ

September 1 Service at 10:30 AM

Bill Whiston

Bill is an ordained Congregational Minister, Unitarian Layman and resident of Brooksby Village. The Mediterranean world at the onset of the current era was dominated by a religion known as “Hellennstic Judaism”. The evidence for this religion and its beliefs are most reliably illustrated in ancient churches and synagogues. The best preserved of these early churches are the remains at Dura, which is located in Syria near the cities presently under siege. The story of how Hellenistic Judaism became Christianity invites us ask “where was Jesus in this move to organized religion?”
