in the Study
In this study, a simple “Lenten feast” of soup, bread and salad expands to a feast on the Word. The emphasis in this study will be on metaphorical and narrative approaches to the Bible. Reading of short Biblical and Theological texts will bring latitude and depth in our explorations.
As Presbyterians, reading the Bible is our starting point. It precedes the dialogue of theology and tradition. Furthermore, Biblical interpretation draws on all of our capacities – to make sense of God’s revelation in all forms, including experience, reason, and tradition. Over 2000 years of interpretive approaches inform our Biblical work today as we journey together with critical insight, seeking meaning and purpose in life.
The following writers will inform our study: Walter Brueggemann, Carol Newsome, Sally McFague, Marcus Borg, Walter Wink, Amy-Jill Levine, Amos Wilder, Everett Fox and Barbara Brown Taylor.
