TUESDAY EVENING SPEAKER SERIES:
“The Problem of Violence in the Bible”
Our next Tuesday Night Speaker Series begins on September 17. The new class, “The Problem of Violence in the Bible” will be led by Rev. Dr. Jerome Creach and will meet in the dining room at 7:00pm. Summary: Since at least the second century Christians have wrestled with the violence they find in the Bible, especially in the Old Testament. Nevertheless, the church has always affirmed that the passages that seem to promote violence are part of our scripture. Our task is to find ways of reading them as such. In these five weeks we will try to do just that. We will take on some of the most difficult parts of the Bible with three questions about each one: How can I read this as God’s word to me and to the church? What does this say about God? What does this call me to do and believe as a follower of Jesus Christ?
