Bible Overview: Hebrew Scriptures, with Rev. Mary
Monday afternoons, beginning January 22
This five-week Unity SEE credit class* will explore the history and development of the Hebrew Scriptures (Old Testament) through stories, exploration of the events, history and the consciousness of the writers. We will learn not only about the various types of writings in the Hebrew Scriptures, but also the writers and the times in which they were writing. We will compare the time periods, learn about their significance and come to understand these sacred writings as a description of the story of the evolution of human consciousness. Required texts: Bible (NRSV – New Revised Standard Version, highly recommended) and Reading the Bible Again, for the First Time by Marcus Borg.
