Does the Old Testament apply to us today? How do you make sense of the prophets? Where did the Bible come from? These are important topics that radically shape the way we know and serve God. This 15 week adult Sunday studies class is designed to give us tools for understanding what the Bible is and how it should be interpreted. This is not just a great class for teachers, but beneficial for everyone.
