The Baptist Center for Ethics (BCE) recently announced the release of a 13-minute DVD, “The Nazareth Manifesto,” that explores Luke 4:18-19 and features insights from Dr. Darrell Gwaltney, dean of the School of Religion, and Dr. Stephanie Buckhanon Crowder, assistant professor in the School of Religion.
Gwaltney, Crowder and several Baptist pastors will be studying the text together from various ethnic and cultural perspectives when various Baptist groups from across North America gather together in Atlanta in January. The DVD costs $12 and is available for order at the BCE Web site. Other Luke 4 resources offered by BCE include a free, online Bible study, The Agenda: 8 Lessons from Luke 4. The resource includes a student’s and leader’s guide authored by prominent North American Baptists, and a Bible study commentary authored by the faculty of the School of Religion at Belmont University.
