The anomolies of John 20:17 – Do not touch me

On Sunday 9 June Annie Albers shared about research she undertaken on the gospel passage John 20:17. She acknowledged Sr Elizabeth and her indirect contribution to Annie’s thesis who taught her Latin at St Dominic’s College and for the Christian Living Classes a time when she developed her love of theology and more specifically biblical studies. Annie never imagined when she was at school that 45 years later she would research this scripture passage and write a thesis.   If you were to hear the translation “Do not touch me” or “Do not hold me” – how do you understand this?  What does it say to you?   We did record the session so if you would like to watch the session via a Zoom recording please contact Teresa.
