Encountering God in sacred Scripture and sacred space

The St. Mary’s University Center for Catholic Studies recently presented the Escobedo Saint John’s Bible Lecture Series, themed, “Between the Throne and the Cross: Divine Encounter and Prophetic Mediation in the Saint John’s Bible.”

The event, held November 17 in the University Center, explored how and where we encounter God and in what ways does God meet us.

Presenter at the gathering was Anathea Portier-Young, Ph.D., associate professor of Old Testament at Duke Divinity School and the author of Apocalypse Against Empire: Theologies of Resistance in Early Judaism and co-editor of Scripture and Social Justice: Catholic and Ecumenical Perspectives.
