Adult Spiritual Formation Class - Reflecting on the Lectionary Texts for the Second Sunday in Lent (RCL Year C)

This is the second of what should be a three part series of adult spiritual formation / education (Sunday School) classes that I'm currently teaching at St. Charles Presbyterian Church (USA), here in March of 2022. The date for this particular recording was March 13, 2022. During this series, I will be leading discussion of the Revised Common Lectionary texts for these Sundays in Lent. Many thanks to my sisters and brothers who joined in the conversation.
This Sunday's readings were:
  • Genesis 15:1-12, 17-18
  • Psalm 27
  • Philippians 3:17-4:1
  • Luke 13:31-35
You can access these readings here.

We discussed things like:
  • Abram / Abraham's 318 "trained men" and what he could possibly have to be afraid of
  • Suzerain treaties
  • Genesis 15:6 and its influence on the Abrahamic faiths (Judaism, Christianity, Islam)
  • Depictions of Jesus's relationship with the Pharisees and the place of Jesus-following Pharisees in the early days of what would become Christianity
  • The apocryphal Lives of the Prophets
  • Feminine imagery for God / God and gender
