Sundays at 9:30 a.m.
Oct. 13 - Nov. 17
Every week in church we hear scripture read. Sometimes it’s a Psalm,
sometimes it’s from one of the gospels, or it might be a letter from Paul.
There are Bibles in the pews in case anyone wants to read the Word, but most
folks choose to listen to it read. (That’s actually very Biblical; for
centuries most people relied on God’s Word to be read to them.)
How well do you really know the Bible? Do you view the God of the Hebrew
Bible (Old Testament) differently than you do the God of the New Testament?
What about things like context and translations?
I’ve wanted to do a Bible study for a while that is aimed at people who have
questions and might not feel comfortable signing up for a traditional class.
Here are some of the areas we’ll cover and the speakers:
Canon | Mining for the Word – Eric Elnes
History | Parchment to Pixel – Phyllis Tickle
Testaments | One Story, Two Parts – Rachel Held
Gospels | Unexpected Good News – Nadia Bolz-Weber
Genre | Rhythm of the Text – Jose Morales
Interpretation | Scripture Reads Us – Will
Grace | Love is the Bottom Line – Jay Bakker
If you are all in, come join us for a no-judgment, all-questions-welcomed
Bible study. We’ll watch a short DVD then talk through the topic of that week.
Let me know if you have any questions. I’m at 703-356-3312 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
