Jesus is acknowledged as probably the single most influential person that ever walked the face of the earth and yet many misconceptions about Jesus abounds. Commemorating one of the most unusual Easter we just celebrated, for our next zoom salon gathering, Dr. Sean McDonough, a professor of New Testament, will lead us in a conversation on “Who is Jesus? What is the significance of Resurrection and what is Christianity?”

We will explore these questions by taking a look at the first public act of Jesus recorded in the Gospel of John — Jesus turning water into wine. Any new leader of a great movement takes tremendous care to give the most accurate picture of the movement when they make their first public presentation. And Jesus’ inaugural act was turning water into the most delicious wine in order to make a dying party into an incredible party. Why did Jesus use his powers for something as trivial as replenishing wine at a party? Why did Jesus perform this miracle as the first one? What does the miracle of turning water into wine reveal about Jesus Himself and about Christianity?

Join us on Thursday, April 16th for an evening of stimulating and open conversation with Dr. McDonough. He received his degrees from Harvard University and University of St. Andrews in Scotland and his research interests and expertise include creation/cosmology in the Bible, Greek philosophy and religion, Apocalyptic Literature, Fantasy Literature, Ethics, and Values.
