Part Two of a Two-Part Forum Series- Who are Jesus’ “the least of these?” (Think you know? Think again…)
presented by Jeannine Brown, Ph.D.,
A prominent passage from Matthew’s Gospel in Christian circles and beyond is Matthew 25:31-46, the Parable of the Sheep and the Goats. A single phrase often captures the public imagination: “the least of these.” What does Matthew mean by it? Does “the least” describe Christians, or others who are cared for by Christians? Does it refer to the poor, or is there a more expansive meaning to the phrase? Our goal is to listen to scripture, to hear how we might respond faithfully to this intriguing (and debated!) passage.
Jeannine Brown has been on the faculty at Bethel seminary since 1995. She specializes in biblical hermeneutics, the Gospels, and particularly Matthew and 1 Peter.
Exploring Sunday’s Lessons Bible Study To Join Adult Forum

Sundays, 9:00 am, Guild Room
Oct 18: Exploring Matthew’s “Great Commission” –
presented by The Rev.’s Colin and Laurel Mathewson – Matthew 28:16-20, often called “the Great Commission,” is one of the most well-known passages in the Bible, but how do you respond (or not!) to these famous words? “… go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them …, and teaching them to obey everything …” It seems to be filled with concepts that grate against our modern sensibilities and also very much in vogue, the essence of missional Christianity. Join this in-depth study exploring how God might be calling us to hear and live these words today.
