Revisiting Genesis: New Angles on Old Stories
3 in stock
Genesis contains some of the best-known stories in the Bible: Adam and Eve; Noah’s Flood; the near sacrifice of Isaac… Despite their familiarity, these are complex narratives, which can be read on different levels. They challenge us to engage with the difficult issues they raise, from problematic family relationships to traumatic devastation and the nature of God. In this course, we will draw on recent scholarship to explore their contemporary resonances. Participants will be asked to read several biblical chapters, along with the accessible article provided, before each of five live sessions.
This course comprises of:
Live discussion sessions
Written and visual materials
A private discussion forum
Live sessions are on alternate Tuesdays at 18:00, beginning on 22 September. You do need to be available to attend the live sessions as they will not be recorded.
