Event TimeFriday: 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm, Saturday: 8:30 am – 4:30 pm
Address17504 98a Ave NW, Edmonton
The Bible is the Word of God for those with heart and mind. But what do we believe about our Christian Scriptures? How did God send the Bible to us? How does God use the Bible in our lives today? So, how do we read Scriptures in a meaningful way today? Answering these question is the task at hand as we explore what Scripture says about itself, how the Bible communicates, the principles by which Christians understand and apply the Bible to their lives, and how translation reflects meaning and application. This is hermeneutics, the study of the principles of interpretation. But in this class every principle comes with at least one illustration from the Old or New Testament. Lecture, pictures, illustrations, reflection and discussion are all part of our hours together. The ultimate aim is that Scripture may be living and transforming, and ever equipping us to be God’s people in this world.
