"The Apocryphal Jesus" Education Series at Hillcrest Church

A video series from "The Great Courses"

"The Apocryphal Jesus" (a video series from The Great Courses) adult education series offers fascinating insights into the early Christian world and how different groups understood the teachings of Jesus and the first apostles.

The New Testament contains 27 Gospels, Letters, Acts and more. These are only a fraction of the many volumes written about the life of Jesus, the apostles, and early Christian communities. This alternative body of literature falls under the category of "apocrypha," which literally means "hidden" or "secret."

Join Rev. Fred Weidmann in viewing and discussing this video series led by Professor David Brakke, Ohio State University, and a friend and fellow student of Rev. Weidmann's in the Graduate Studies program at Yale. You do not have to be a member of Hillcrest Church UCC to attend this series. There is no fee to attend. Hillcrest Church is an open and affirming congregation.
