How to Read the Bible for All It’s Worth
March 2nd | Taught by Seth Goertz|Welcome Center| Level: II
The Bible is not only the foundation of our faith, it is a foundational work of literature. But to many people, including Christians, the Bible often feels unapproachable and archaic. The key to understanding the Bible, is to read it on its own terms. Just like Shakespeare, Harry Potter, and your Sunday paper, the Bible is its own unique work of literature that needs to be read as its authors originally intended. The purpose of this class is to explore what makes the Bible unique and to learn how we can better understand and interpret the Bible when we read it on our own.

The Word of the Holy One to Israel, the Remnant, and the Nations… and the Promise of the Child to Be Born (Isaiah Inductive Bible Study)
Tuesdays, January 12 – April 20 | 9:00 AM – 11:30 AM | Room 207 | Taught by: Nancy Whalen, Marilyn Hayes | Level: II
Isaiah is the crown jewel of Old Testament prophets, a book that strikes awe in the heart of its reader, especially when its poetry is read in the Hebrew. Prophecies from Isaiah are mentioned in twenty-two places in the New Testament. The words of Isaiah were often found on the lips of the Christ, the Messiah prophesied in Isaiah. If Jesus, God incarnate, honored this grand and glorious book so highly, then you and I ought to do the same.
In Isaiah Part 1, we’ll meet the Holy One of Israel, and learn how He deals with those who claim Him as God but don’t honor Him as God in the way that they live. And we’ll find the destiny of nations, the future of all mankind … including ours.
