Making Sense of Mary is not your average apologetics course. Instead of memorizing proof-texts, we are going to uncover how Scripture and the early Christians understood Mary’s role in God’s perfect plan of redemption, beginning in Genesis with Adam, Eve, and the Serpent and tracing the prophetic echoes of that event all the way to the Book of Revelation. We’ll see why Mary plays such an important and indispensable role in God’s plan, how the Kingdom of David sheds light on Mary’s mission both on earth and in Heaven, how being members of the Body of Christ affects our relationship to Mary, and finally what the “Woman clothed with the sun” in Revelation 12 tells us about Mary and our battle against the Evil One. The class will be based on Gary Michuta’s book, Making Sense of Mary.
