Stories of the Hebrew Bible: Origins and Meaning, Then and Now
February 17, 24, March 3
There are perhaps six hundred stories in the Hebrew Bible (or “Old Testament”). Where did they come from? What were their function and meaning? What do they have to say to us today?
February 17 – Pastor Jeffrey Phillips (who will begin with an overview of the topic)
February 24 – Pastor Jeff Braun
March 3 – Pastor Sarah Lohrbach
Stories are powerful conveyors of spiritual meaning. We will not get to all six hundred narratives, but we hope that the ones we cover will enrich your spiritual life. No previous knowledge of the subject matter needed.
