Lenten Bible "Detox": Study of Mark 12:13-17 led by Dong Hyeon JeongLenten Bible "Detox"
March 18, 2021, 7:30pm Eastern Time
Each Lent, CLBSJ focuses our attention on the misuse of the Bible to promote and justify violence and oppression. All are welcome on this journey of healing and reclaiming.
In this session, Rev. Dr. Dong Hyeon Jeong will share an Asian-American Pacific Islander (AAPI) perspective on Mark 12:13-17, in which Jesus discusses taxation with the Pharisees and Herodians. This passage contains the instruction to “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s,” which has often been used to imply the need for blind acceptance of authority.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
