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.
Each Sunday night from August 23 until November 22 (off Sept 6–Labor Day and Oct 25–Grace Trunk or Treat), we will watch a 30 minute teaching video by Dr. Sandra Richter of Harvard University’s Near Eastern Languages and Civilization Department, and then break into small groups for discussion. We will be using Zoom for our online class.
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.
