March 24th, 6:30 pm, Main Church with Joel Peddletrials_socrates
Witness the dramatic showdown between passion and reason, folly and wit in a comparative journey back in time. Why is the trial of Socrates (399 BC) in any way connected to the trial of Jesus? How does Socrates’ fearless philosophical desire for universal truth find expression and completion in the trial of Jesus? How is faith and reason enlarged by understanding their trials? Lecturer Joel Peddle explores the similarities and differences of how these trials shaped the ancient world and re-center our lives today.
