Have you ever struggled to understand the Old Testament? Have you ever wondered why there is so much violence in the Old Testament? Have you ever wondered why there were so many laws and rituals in the Old Testament and pondered upon how these fit into how we follow Jesus today? Have you written off the Old Testament as too strange and just satisfied yourself to focus on the New Testament because it’s “easier to understand.”
I invite you to join me for the Epic of Eden: Understanding the Old Testament. It is impossible to understand Christ and his mission apart from God’s words and activities that are revealed to us in the Old Testament. If you will give me 12 weeks, I will give you the tools and knowledge to read the Old Testament with understanding and with joy.
Each Wednesday night from January 17 until April 11, will consist of a brief introduction from me to prepare you for the material, a 30 minute teaching video by Dr. Sandra Richter of Harvard University’s Near Eastern Languages and Civilization Department, a post video summary by me that helps us see the practical implications of what we have learned, and discussion time around your table.
Wherever you are in your knowledge of the bible and in your walk with Christ, I truly believe that this class is going to help lay a solid foundation for your spiritual life. I encourage you to join me as we learn of our God who is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
