  • Introduction to the Old Testament

    Starting Tuesday, Sept 25

    On Tuesday evenings at 7:00-8:30 PM for 6 weeks, we will be offering the second course of the Massachusetts Bible Society’s Exploring the Bible series Introducing the Old Testament.

    This second course helps you better understand the Old Testament in the context of the world in which it was written. The Old Testament is the story of the Jewish people and their distinctive God, giving us a glimpse through story, song, history, and law of the rocky, raucous, faithful, fumbling beginnings of one of the oldest religions on earth.

    You don’t need to know a thing to participate and you don’t have to have taken the first course, but if you did we hope you sign up again. Join Rev Will Burhans and Anne Hoenicke, class leaders, for lively discussion, small group exercises and faith enriching study of scripture.  Student Guides will be provided. Class size is limited, please sign up here
