The Bible is the word of God for the people of God.
And yet, Christians often struggle to make sense of the book. We may have memorized some verses here or there, or read one of the hottest devotionals, but how do we become wise interpreters of the Bible ourselves?
The answer is that it takes practice! This four-week class is an opportunity—for beginners and season Bible readers alike—to deepen your understanding of the Bible and of the nature of biblical interpretation.
Let’s start off the new year on the right foot: by learning to interpret Holy Scripture together in community.
This class covers:
- The goal of biblical interpretation.
- Tips for reading the various kinds of writings in the Bible.
- The importance of historical context when reading the Bible.
- Developing interpretive virtues.
