Bible Basics

Date: 
3rd Friday of Every Month
Location: 
Room 205

This year we will look at how Israel portrays her history through the Books of the Old Testament. We will engage in a three,way conversation with these books: the context of the target audience at the time the books were written, the context of the history portrayed in each book, and the context of themodern audience. All are welcome, especially newcomers to bible study. The 90 minute class will be held on the third Friday evening of each month of the academic year, 7:00‐8:30 in Room 205. The textbook will be the Old Testament itself; no additional reading or long‐term commitment required. (The classes will be based on the work of Michael D. Coogan, The Old Testament, A Historical and Literary Introduction to the Hebrew Scriptures, 2014, and An Introduction to the Old Testament, The Canon and Christian Imagination by Walter Brueggemann, and Tod Linafelt, 2011).

The reality is that I too have

Authored your pain.

I laid a blank piece of paper down

When you needed me to respond.

I chose the shortcut.

I learned complicity,

Learned to move quietly in my privilege,

Learned to let the doors open for me

Before walked inside.

I inherited fear

And did not unlearn it.

In fight or flight, I flew.

I confess all this.

And I commit to hearing

The raw stories,

To letting your vulnerability

Chafe me.
