Fr. David B. Couturier, O.F.M. Cap.

Fr. David B. Couturier, O.F.M. Cap., will present a free online study of “From Gospel to Life:  Jesus in the New Testament.”  This mini-course, offered over three Saturdays in June, will provide Secular Franciscans with a faithful and contemporary view of Jesus, as He is presented in the Letters of Paul and the Synoptic Gospels.

Fr. Couturier will discuss Jesus in His Jewish historical context, providing a fresh look at the stories we know so well. In understanding how Jesus spoke in Jewish terms, we can more deeply appreciate His words, thoughts, and commands. His parables will come alive.  The course will run from 12-1:30 p.m. Eastern Time on June 3, 10, and 17.
