For many believers, the Bible can be a complicated book; some parts such as the New Testament seem reasonably straight forward, mostly focussed on Jesus and his immediate followers.
The Old Testament in contrast can seem obscure; the God it speaks of can appear to bear little in common with the Jesus of the New Testament; it can seem full of archaic practices and irrelevant rules for living. It’s God can seem vengeful and as for those historic figures who believed in Him………? In fact many would say ‘what’s the point of the Old Testament; can we trust the whole Bible; how do we come to have it as it is today and how should we read it?’.
Starting on Tuesday January 5th, with 8 fortnightly evening sessions running through to mid-April, we are looking to find some answers to the above and other questions by running The Bible Course on Zoom. Each week will comprise a very watchable video, with discussion opportunities during our time together. The course should be of particular help to new believers, those who have been discouraged in their attempts to get to grips with the written word of God, and for any who have not given up but are confused!
If you think this is for you or have a friend who would like to consider this, do please get in touch with either Chris via firstname.lastname@example.org or Andy via email@example.com. If you are interested but Tuesdays don’t work for you, please do still get in touch with Chris or Andy.
