There is a big difference between studying Jesus as a historical figure and learning Him as a living presence.
 
Dr. Luke Timothy Johnson will unfold dimensions of learning about Jesus in the life of the Church: proper understanding of the Resurrection, modes and means of learning the living Lord, and moral and intellectual qualities that make such learning possible.


Admission is FREE and open to the public.

Call 913-758-6158 for more information.
