R- Exploring the Bible
This is a friendly study group, now in its seventh year. Our aim is to look at books. themes or personalities in the Bible, both the Old and New Testament.
The leader is a Lay Reader in the Church of England, but people of any faith, or none, are welcome to join. Our aim is to find out more about this fascinating and important book, or group of books, and to enjoy hearing each other's opinions and thoughts.
Our meetings are from 10.00 to around 11.45 on Monday mornings weekly (apart from holidays). We recommence on September 13th 2021. Our meetings will be held in the Fell Room in the Friends' Meeting House, Friargate. Enter from Clifford Street.
We're going to start with the hilarious book of Jonah, the prophet who thought he knew better than God.
We'll then go on to study 'The Bible of the Early Church' - the parts of the Old Testament that were used in the churches of the people who wrote the New Testament.
After that we'll study history of the formation of the Church's beliefs, in the first few centuries AD, about who Jesus was, and what is his relationship to God, basing our discussions around extracts from the New Testament.
Topics are chosen by the members. Proposals for later on include Ecclesiastes, Hebrews, Esther, and Prophecy
