Welcome to “Bible Study for Progressives,” a show where moderates, liberals and leftists of all faiths and ideologies come together to discuss scripture, spirituality and politics.
Today’s show is entitled: “Incarnation and the Word: An Universalist, Gnostic, and New Age Reading of John 1:1-14” After reading from the Gospel of John, we will entertain an alternative interpretation that tracks the text is a poetic way. In one of the most treasured passages in the New Testament, John declares Jesus to be God. Christ is “the Word” by which God created the cosmos. Our reading will track this revered text and interpret it spiritually and intuitively. Afterwards, we will hear other viewpoints.
