Fall/Winter Bible Study

 

Fall/Winter 2017 Bible Study

Admittedly, the Old Testament proves a stumbling block for most readers of the Bible. Endless genealogies, countless animal sacrifices, ancient rituals and customs, and kings and prophets cause most people to bail out around Leviticus 23. The problem with skating past the Old Testament is it makes up about 3/4 of the Bible. Few realize just how critical understanding the Old Testament is to really “getting” Jesus and the New Testament.

In The Epic of Eden, Dr. Sandra Richter, Professor of Biblical Interpretation at Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois, jumps headlong into the Old Testament to clearly and powerfully communicate a history of God’s redeeming grace, weaving together a story that runs from the Eden of the Garden to the garden of the New Jerusalem.

Legendary Bible stories take on new life as Dr. Richter clearly articulates their part of a larger pattern, revealing an even deeper significance for the tales individually. The Epic of Eden video study is ideal for serious church groups wanting a meaty study of biblical text, as would anyone eager for a strategic grasp of the good, the bad, and the ugly of the Old Testament and how it relates to God’s activity in the present.
