Bible Universe | September 10 – 24, 2019

What is in the Bible? How do I read it? How can I understand it better? How do I apply it to my life? 
Most of these questions have probably popped into your mind at one time or another, and the answers are as diverse as they are personal! Whether you have never read the Bible before, or if you have read the Bible your entire life — or anywhere in between — this study is for you!

In this three-week course, we’ll:

  • Discuss histories, cultures, religions, and languages that have shaped the Bible.
  • Look at different Bible types and translations and offer tips for figuring out which ones will suit you best.
  • Practice different ways of reading the Bible individually and in a group setting to explore the benefits of each.
  • Learn about the ancient stories that did not make it to our Old Testament — and gospels not included in our New Testament.
  • Delve into the diverse world of Bible commentaries and interpretations in order to understand what stands behind this wide variety of ways to understand the Bible.

Join us for Bible Universe and experience your Bible in a whole new way!

Galatians | October 1 – November 5, 2019

Galatians could have been the earliest letter that we have from apostle Paul. We carefully read through this letter, discuss the cultural context of the church in Galatia, how it affected the life of the believers, and how Paul communicated the good news of Jesus Christ to that community. Our main question is what the letter to Galatians is telling us today.
