Return to Faith Formation


Online Adult Sunday School


We will look at passages on food starting in Genesis, then look at food and the Jewish law, see an erotic application of food in the Song of Solomon, consider meals of the prophet John of locusts and wild honey (what was that all about anyway?), famine versus malnutrition in the story of the Prodigal Son, food and the Passover remade into Holy Communion, and Jesus’ parables of food. We will cover biblical topics of food as blessing, hospitality and Holy Communion: ethical eating, the poor at our tables, and food and nutrition.

This course will also feature recipes and cooking techniques. We will cover texts written by Galen, a Roman doctor who studied food and nutrition in the second century. We will look for possibilities in learning how our eating is connected to our following Jesus.
