What is The Bible?

Sept. 9, 16, 23, 30. Led by Pastor Jason. Room 302.

What is the bible? Is it the “perfectly inspired word of God without error in the original manuscripts” or is it simply “a collection of stories and traditions passed down for thousands of years by a religious minority”? Or is it something in-between? Or all the above? This is a question that rarely gets discussed yet is at the heart of many of today’s thorniest theological and cultural issues.

So, let’s explore it together.

Over four weeks, Pastor Jason will lead us in an exploration of the Bible as a whole. This won’t be a normal Bible study, although we will look at some passages in depth. Instead it will be an exploration of what the Bible itself is, how we think about it, how we use it, and what we are to do with it.

Come, be a part of the conversation.

 

Hourglass Bible Study

The Theme is Chosen by God. Sunday mornings from 9:30 to 10:30 beginning October 7. In the Conference Room.

The Bible is full of stories that reveal God’s choice of individuals for vital tasks.  Beginning October 7, we will take up a variety of Bible passages describing people chosen by God – some famous, some lesser known.  We will explore how God selected them, how they realized they had been chosen, and how God’s people discerned or failed to discern God’s will.  We’ll apply the variety of approaches discussed in Pastor Jason’s September class, “What is the Bible?”  Everyone is welcome, and advance preparation is not required.
