Biblical Studies 1: Why We Read The Bible? Why Study It? Why Care?

March 9 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

  • Instructor: Rev. Janet Anstead
  • Schedule: March 9, 16, 23, 2022 – Wednesdays, 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm EST

The Bible is understood by most Christians to be both human and divine. What are the implications of this when we study, interpret or proclaim these beloved texts? How did the Bible as we know it come to be and why do the books included differ among various Christian faith traditions? What diverse voices are we encountering when we engage with these ancient texts? If you have ever asked these questions … or others … about the Bible this course is for you. It provides an introduction to a number of foundational questions and approaches for eng0aging with contemporary Biblical study. At the end of this course, you will be able to share why the Bible retains relevance and importance in contemporary culture, to understand why different communities have made different choices as to what is ‘in’ and what is ‘out’ of the canon, and you will have a strong appreciation of the importance of identifying literary genres and forms within the Bible. In summary, this course will help you to engage with the scriptures in such a way as to be empowered to reflect on the place of the Bible in your own faith-community (if applicable), and in your own life.
