Bible for Beginners
Explore one book, or explore them all
September 25 – December 11, Tuesday Evenings, 7-8:30pm
October 7 – December 9, Sundays Mornings, 9:15-10am
With two introductory Tuesday evening lectures by Dr. Patricia Dutcher-Walls (Sept 25, Oct 2)
When it comes to the Bible we’re all beginners. Ask anyone with a theological education, or any Biblical scholar, and they’ll tell you that there’s always more to learn about the Bible. That’s why the Cathedral clergy are offering this course — an introductory survey of Biblical literature. You’re welcome to attend as many or as few sessions as is possible for you — each session stands alone. Offered Sunday mornings and Tuesday nights, presentations and discussions focus on specific texts. We’re gradually working our way through the entire Bible — an ambitious adventure to be sure!
The autumn 2012 course focuses on some of the most beautiful and challenging parts of the First (Old) Testament: The Prophets. Come and explore a world of poetic language and biting social commentary as we journey through Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Hosea, Amos, and others.
Typically Sunday morning (9:15-10am) is a lecture presentation of the material, while on the Tuesday night (7-8:30pm) specific texts are examined more thoroughly in an easy mix of presentation and conversation. The autumn season begins with two Tuesday evening lectures from Dr. Patricia Dutcher-Walls introducing the world of the prophets, their theology, and their radical social critique.
