Praise Him - songs of praise in the New Testament
We are used to singing hymns of praise when we go to church but often we miss the hymns and poems that are there in the New Testament.
This course will explore five different Songs of Praise from the New Testament, looking at what they tell us about God and Jesus but also reflecting on what they tell us about us and our faith.
1. Gratitude (Ephesians 1.3-14)
2. Image of God (Colossians 1.15-20)
3. Humility (Philippians 2.5-11)
4. New birth (1 Peter 1.3-12)
5. Word made flesh (John 1.1-14)
The course booklet, written and introduced by New Testament scholar Dr Paula Gooder includes a good selection of questions at the end of each of the five sessions, designed to stimulate wide-ranging discussion.
The participants on the course CD are Archbishop Justin Welby, Sister Wendy Beckett and actor David Suchet CBE.
Methodist Moira Sleight provides the Closing Reflection at the end of each session.
