Ever wonder how the Bible came to be? What about all the different translations and some Bibles even have different books? And what is even in the Bible? The stories and writings in the Bible can seem strange and very disjointed. In 4 sessions, we will explore these questions and more. Participants will walk away knowing more about the history of the Bible, how Christians and specifically Lutherans approach the Bible and how the 5 c’s of the Bible (creation, curved in, covenant, Christ, and church) make up the big story that we all are wrapped in today.
Session 1: What’s in the Bible?
Session 2: How did we get the Bible?
Session 3: How do I read the Bible?
Session 4: What does the Bible have to do with me?
This course is open to all. Specifically for people who know the Bible is important to Christianity but aren’t really sure why, people who have questions about the Bible, people who remember learning about the Bible in Sunday School or confirmation but don’t remember what they learned, people who want to deepen their faith and know that this book seems to be central to that task but don’t know where to start.
Materials – Bring your favorite Bible. The Lutheran Study Bible is a great choice if you don’t have a Bible or are looking for a good study Bible. https://www.amazon.com/Lutheran-Bible-NRSV-Augsburg-Fortress-Publishing/dp/0806680601/ref=pd_lpo_2?pd_rd_i=0806680601&psc=1
