Moses - Marc Chagall and the Bible Devotional Evening with Jason Byassee

Marc Chagall and the Bible devotional series with Jason Byassee on July 13, 2023

Time:

7:00 PM to 8:00 PM

Where:

Wycliffe College, 5 Hoskin Ave, Toronto

Jason Byassee, senior minister of Timothy Eaton Memorial Church in Toronto, Ontario, will lead a meditative lecture on the lithographs of Moses from the Marc Chagall and the Bible exhibition.

One of the first lessons students of church history learn is that St. Jerome mistranslated the Old Testament when he described Moses as having “horns.” Yet visual artists who know better can’t seem to help themselves. Moses (I) shows Moses either with horns or something very like them. Moreover its intense red shows an angry and accusing patriarch. Christians now know we must interest Moses without supersession, yet here is our temptation made clearest. How do we not say the law accuses while grace gives life?

The event is free to the public and no registration is required.
