Pastor Led Studies Start Again - Epic of Eden begins Sept 14
Tue, June 1, 2021
Epic of eden, The Psalms: Pastor-led bible study to begin on September 14. Registration begins June 13.
Sandra Richter brings our ancestors in the faith to the table where we learn from them in a cross-cultural experience bridging historical and modern day life. This eight-session study of the Book of Psalms masterfully mixes scholarly and practical teaching through the most-known wisdom Book of the Bible.
The key messages of this study include: what the Book of Psalms is (the hymnbook of ancient Israel), how it was utilized in Israelite worship (the various “forms” of the Psalms), and why the Book of Psalms remains critical to our devotional lives today. Sandra also dives into the concrete realities of Israelite worship (the tabernacle, temple, priesthood, and sacrifice) as well as Israel’s theology of worship wrapped up in their theocratic world view.
Experience the Psalms with fresh connections to contemporary worship and devotional practices. Indulge in the biblical study of the Psalms from a scholar and former pastor. Letting Sandra do the “heavy lifting” of research and translation allows you to experience the Bible in a deeply sensitive way, answering the evergreen question, “so what does this have to do with me today?”
How does this series work? The study involves two components. The first is a set of eight filmed, approximately half hour, sessions with Dr. Sandra Richter (available as a DVD), and the second is a study guide for each of your group members. Once per week your group will gather to view the filmed study, talk about the individual work from the week, and focus on some group discussion questions. Let the adventure begin!
