Scripture Study: Israel’s Story Part I

Our Old Testament is divided into sections based on traditional understandings of the type of literature they represent. Anyone reading through the Old Testament in the order the books appear might find themselves challenged to appreciate their scope and context. How do these writings contribute to Israel’s self understanding? How do they reflect the setting and period of history from which they arose?

This study explores Old Testament history, theology, and stories from the creation accounts of Genesis to the fall of the Northern Kingdom (722 B.C.) and its prophets. Its goal is to provide participants with a good overview of how ancient Israel understood its relationship to God, its history, its beliefs, and its hopes, as documented in the Old Testament.

All are welcome to join this study, Thursday mornings, 9:15 to 10:30 a.m. in the Parish Hall Library, from October 12th until November 16th. Please rsvp below or in the parish office. There will be an $18 charge for materials. If you have any questions please contact Merry Reardon at mreardon@dsj.org.
