Deep Dive into the Old Testament
On May 23, CV will restart a group called “Deep Dive into the Old Testament.” This is an online class via ZOOM on Monday evenings (7:15-8:15pm).
Along with scripture, we will be we will be reading the book, The Lost World of Adam and Eve by John Walton. Professor Walton is a well respected Old Testament scholar who specializes in Ancient Near Eastern backgrounds of the Old Testament. He is a professor of Old Testament at Wheaton College and Graduate School.
This group will be helpful for those of us who have had a difficult time reconciling the first few chapters of Genesis with contemporary science. The general format will be to read one or two chapters a week. During class, Charles Bello will share a brief overview of the chapters read, followed by a group discussion. The classes are structured as a book club, which means class time is discussion oriented. But, be warned, we will all have to put on our “thinking caps” because many of our assumptions and interpretations about Genesis will be challenged.
You are more than welcome to participate in the class without purchasing and reading the book, but you will benefit most by doing the reading. You can download the first couple of chapters of the book through Amazon to see if this is something you want to participate in.
Charles Bello is the facilitator for both groups. Contact Charles with any questions.
