The Making of the Bible
Starts on Sunday, February 11, 2018 at 9a in Room 109 for 4-6 weeks. All ages welcome.
A three-part lecture about the making of the Bible. The first lecture is about the making of the Old Testament and how much we know from the Bible itself about how it came into existence. The second lecture is a look in how the books of the New Testament were written and collected. The third and final lecture details how the 66 books came to be found in the Bible, called canonization. The class will also discuss the range of various Bible translations. Class participants will discover and appreciate a very human process in this divine-human partnership of the making of the Bible as well as a confidence that the words contained in our modern translations of these ancient texts are accurate and trustworthy.
