DATES AND TOPICS:
Term 3 - Sun 12 August, 2018
Topic 1: Genre - the key to reading and understanding the Bible (Tim Patrick)
The Bible is a collection of sixty-six texts that were gathered together over many hundreds of years. There all different types of texts in both the Old and New Testaments and if we fail to distinguish their genres, we risk misunderstanding them. In this seminar, we will spend some time exploring the different biblical genres before we go on to consider how each should inform our reading.
Topic 2: Revealing Revelation (Tim Patrick)
While the whole purpose of the book of Revelation is to reveal God’s purposes, many readers still find it quite confusing. This can be because they have failed to understand its genre, which influences both its style and content. In this workshop we will think about why the apocalyptic genre is necessary for the book of Revelation and what are the big ideas that should control our reading of the book.
Term 4 - Sun 28 October, 2018
