Overview:  Hebrew Scriptures
Tuesdays, August 6 – September 3
6:30 pm
Instructor: Rev. Sheryl McCullough, LUT
The Hebrew Scriptures are at the root of three major world religions – Judaism,      Christianity, and Islam.  This course uses the term “Hebrew Scriptures” in place of the more commonly used term “Old Testament.”  Hebrew Scriptures are a collection of   fascinating and sometimes confusing stories, poetry, wisdom sayings, and inspired visions.  Students will explore the history and development of Hebrew Scriptures,  thereby acquiring a solid foundation for continuing study and exploration.  By the end of the course learners will be able to:
~ Identify parts and origins of the Hebrew Scriptures.
~ Identify the writers and the times of the writings.
~ Compare time periods and explain their significance.
~ Explain how the Hebrew Scriptures can present the story of the evolution of the consciousness of humankind.
The required textbooks are: Reading the Bible Again for the First Time ($15) by Marcus J. Borg AND The Bible – preferably one of the following translations (The NRSV: New Revised Standard Version ($15); or the NET: New English Translation).  If you are  taking the class for S.E.E. credit, the Unity Worldwide Ministries fee is $45.  The class is open to everyone!  To prepare for the first session read:  Chapters 1 and 2 in Genesis.
