Sometimes reading the scriptures can be both strange and confusing. When a story seems a bit odd to us, we can rightly ask: Why this story? Where does it fit in?
Across the arc of both the Old and New Testaments, there are some big stories into which much of the scriptures fit. Understanding these important stories and themes can help make sense of a particular passage’s meaning.
In this third course for 2021 for the Ormond Learning HUB, we will explore the big themes of the scriptures. Some of these will include:
- Bondage and Liberation, Exile and Return and Sin and Forgiveness.
- We will explore the question: Does the violence of the crucifixion really redeem us?
- What does the event of the resurrection mean?
We will draw our material from the series Living the Questions and allow generous time for small group conversation.
When: Thursdays 21st, 28th October & 4th November, 7.30pm.
Where: Online by Zoom (if we are able to meet face to face, we will advise at the time)
Cost: $30 for the course
Who: led by Rev. Andrew Boyle
