GRACE AND TRUTH HAVE COME
THROUGH JESUS CHRIST
SUMMER CONFERENCE ON
THE PROLOGUE OF THE GOSPEL OF JOHN
14 – 16 AUGUST 2020
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God …
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth;
we have beheld his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father …
The law was given through Moses; grace and truth have come through Jesus Christ.
Jn 1:1, 14, 17
The Prologue of the Gospel of St John is one of the richest passages in all of Sacred Scripture. In this Year of the Word, the Academy of the Annunciation invites you to spend 3 days with this very rich text.
- Why is the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity called “the Word”?
- Why doesn’t the Gospel say, “In the beginning was the Son”?
- What do we mean by the “Procession of the Word”?
In this conference we will focus in particular on Jn 1:17.
- What does it mean that “Grace and Truth have come through Jesus Christ”?
- And how is this passage related to the Church and the Sacraments, through which we receive grace?
- What do we really mean in all those prayers when we say, “through Christ our Lord”?
Come and spend three days plumbing the depths of this very rich text from God’s revelation in Sacred Scripture!
And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.
During this conference, we follow in the footsteps of the early Christians, studying together, praying together, and being nourished together at the Eucharistic Banquet. There are also opportunities to enjoy social time and fellowship with staff members, fellow disciples, and the Oratory Fathers.
Places are limited. Please register as soon as possible to ensure you have a reserved place.
