Leading a Bible Study: Advanced Lay Servant Ministries Course

May 5 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm PDT

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 5:30 pm on Thursday, repeating until May 19, 2022


Biblical Interpretation: A Roadmap is a guide to discovering and asking the key questions-about biblical texts, about readers of the Bible, and about the interaction of the two-that forms the basis of biblical interpretation today. These questions are organized around three fundamental assumptions that govern the authors’ approach to reading the bible:
1.The biblical texts arise from particular historical, social, and cultural settings.
2. The reader likewise reads from a specific setting.
3. Neither the diversity of the texts nor the multitude of readers stands in isolation one from the other.

This course opens a new world for many lay servants who have not had professional training in biblical interpretation. It reminds us as United Methodists that Bible study and biblical interpretation are a core part of our spiritual journey.

*Each participant must have the book, read it, and fully participate in all 5 sessions with audio and video.
