Prophecy: The Written Testimony
St. John the Evangelist
12:30 pm – 1:30 pm
The Institute of Advanced Theology (IAT) will be sponsoring its Fall Advent Luncheon Lecture Series, "Prophecy: the written testimony" beginning on Friday October 5 and will continue on each Friday in October and November 2nd.

Prophets claim to link the world of human beings with divine reality. Their methods have included recourse topoetry, vision, music, and ritual. Prophecy ahs typically been seen as an undocumented activity, either too remote in time or too marginal to be fully recorded. Yet the Hebrew Bible provides direct evidence - reaching back to the eighth century B.C.E. - of what the prophetic process and prophetic communication involve.

We will meet at St. John the Evangelist in Barrytown, NY. At noon lunch will be available for IAT members at a charge of $10.00 and non-members $13.00. Reservations for lunch are necessary by calling 845-758-7279 or e-mail iat@bard.edu.

For more information, call 845-758-7279, or e-mail desmond@bard.edu.

Time: 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm

Location: St. John the Evangelist
