Theologian Dr Margaret Barker draws together extensive evidence that, prior to the destruction of the first temple in Jerusalem in the 8th Century BCE, a feminine divine figure was worshipped both in the Temple, in other places in the wilderness and in people’s homes. She appears to have been a central figure of Hebrew religious devotion.
This month’s discussion features a recap of Bishop Tim’s talk about Dr Barker’s research at the recent AJC Conclave in Montreal, followed by discussion and play with the ideas.
Dinner discussions are an informal time to meet and get to know each other, to discuss what we’re reading, ask questions, and share ideas and experiences.
