Lay School Class Explores "The New Testament and The Da Vinci Code"

The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown is causing a lot of discussion about its characters' claims regarding the formation of the New Testament and early Christian beliefs. Luther Seminary invites people to separate fact from fiction at a special Lay School of Theology class,

"The New Testament and The Da Vinci Code: Exploring Questions about Faith, Fiction and Early Christian Texts." Matthew Skinner, assistant professor of New Testament, will shed light on the creation of the Bible, early Christian texts and movements, and women's roles in first century churches.

The class will be held on three consecutive Mondays, April 19, April 26 and May 3, from 7-9 p.m.
