Forum: Dr. Thomas Culbertson, The Prayer Life of Jesus

The Rev. Dr. Thomas Culbertson is Rector Emeritus of Emmanuel Church. He holds a PhD from the Graduate Theological Foundation, Indiana, and was previously on the faculty of the Ecumenical Institute of Theology at St. Mary’s Seminary in Roland Park. He will present a two-part lecture and discussion series focusing on Jesus: his prayer life, as well as what Jesus thought about himself. This Sunday, Dr. Culbertson’s topic will focus on the fact that even the most astute reader of the Gospel may miss the intense and frequent prayer life of Jesus of Nazareth. He will examine a few of the narratives (especially in Luke) that include the sentence, “he went out to the mountains to pray.”
