Summer OT Class

“Theological Narrative and Deuteronomic History”

(In other words, never let the truth get in the way of a good story)

This summer, church member Kevin Burns developed an taught an Old Testament Survey for youth through adult that reviews many well-known texts from the Old Testament. Whether a reminder of how familiar Old Testament stories connect together is helpful or if learning the “agenda” of the ancient Hebrew editor who composed the final versions of the narratives in our Old Testament sounds interesting or engaging how the history of the Hebrew Bible compares with the archaeological record seems valuable; this class offers a way to study these things together. This class was taught from July 9, 2015 to August 16, 2015.
