1st Sunday Talk - Suzanne Henderson

April 2, 2017 - 9:30am to 10:30am

Suzanne Henderson

Dr. Suzanne Henderson is a professor of religion at Queens University and Director of the Center for Ethics and Religion. She is also co-author of a forthcoming book, "Reflections on The Cross in Contexts: Suffering and Redemption in Palestine." We'll explore Jesus’ death on a cross against the backdrop of Roman-occupied Palestine. We’ll consider the New Testament’s claim that, rather than a tragedy, Jesus’ death brought salvation to the world. Finally, we’ll consider what it means to follow in the “way of the cross” in our own place and time.
