R- Exploring the Bible
This is a friendly, open-minded study group that looks at texts, themes, stories and personalities of the Old and New Testaments. 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 interpretations.
In 2018-19 we started by looking at Women in the Old Testament, and then read through the Acts of the Apostles. We also studied Jonathan Sacks’s fascinating book: ‘Not in God’s Name’. In September 2019 we will start by exploring the theme of Sex and Marriage in the Bible, followed by Money. Further themes and topics will be suggested by members.
Members can bring a Bible of their own choice if they wish, but copies of the passages we are studying will be provided.
