The sacred writings of the Hebrews were compiled over many centuries. Understanding them helps us to understand our Christian faith. Announcing a new class on Sunday morning, via Zoom:

The roots of our Christian faith lie in the vast collection of writings in the Old Testament (Hebrew Scriptures). Heroes and villains, crimes and compassion, misery and triumph — and over it all the abiding presence of Yahweh, the god of a wandering band of nomads that became a lamp unto the feet of the rest of the world. How did this collection (including a talking snake) come to be? Who decided? And what does it mean for us as Christians today? We invite you to join us for a deep dive into the history of our foundational document.
