Looking at Biblical and Theological Issues Through Poetry


Is Jesus human?  Yes, said the early church.  And also divine.  Those attending our Adult Education session on revisited this question and Christianity's response by viewing works of art about Jesus and reading poems about those works.  Professor Gerry Hendershot share his insights from a poetry and art class he organized at American University’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute.  Both the art and the poetry ask: did Jesus have a human body and human emotions, with all their limitations?  How is it important to a Christian's faith that Jesus be human?  How do we reconcile the humanity of Jesus with his divinity?  For the discussion and Professor Hendershot's thoughts, go to our YouTube channel and find our May 8 2022 session.
