Did Jesus really mean for us to be good for this long?

The Escobedo Saint John's Bible Lecture Series presents Professor Laurie Brink, O.P., Ph.D., who will explore whether Jesus' words were intended to apply for more than 2,000 years, as we continue to wait for The Second Coming. How are we to live until Jesus comes again? How do we interpret His mandates in today's world?

Brink, who teaches New Testament Studies at the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago, will offer two presentations of her talk, Interpreting Gospel Ethics in an Age of Polarization, on Jan. 30 at St. Mary's and Jan. 31 at Holy Rosary Catholic Church, adjacent to the University.

This lecture series is made possible by a gift from Distinguished Alumnus Ruben Escobedo (B.B.A. '60) and his wife, Veronica Salazar Escobedo.

Programs linked to The Saint John's Bible Heritage Edition have a central theme of "Let There Be Light" because we believe the Bible leads to enlightenment and strengthens faith for all who witness it.

All lectures are free and open to the public.
