Confessing the Beatitudes—Horizons Bible Study, Ecumenical e
In the nine lessons of Confessing the Beatitudes, the 2011–2012 Horizons Bible study, Margaret Aymer invites us to to consider the Beatitudes as they might have been heard when Jesus spoke them—during the time of the Roman Empire. While great in many respects, Rome was a cruel regime under which many suffered. We are invited to identify with those who are poor and oppressed and, at the end of each lesson, to enter into a process of confession. This ecumenical edition is of particular interest to anyone of the Reformed tradition.
