Bible Study: Book of Daniel
- Date: Thursday, September 26, 2019
- Time: 10:30am–12:00pm
- Location: Library
The only apocalyptic book in the Hebrew Scriptures, written about 170 years before the birth of Christ, Daniel offers encouragement to God’s people during a time of trial and persecution. A fascinating text with six stories and four dreams-visions, Daniel had an enormous influence on Judaism in the years before Jesus’s birth. And there are key passages in the Gospels where Jesus makes direct allusions back to this text. We’ll explore these stories and listen for what the Spirit might be saying in our day. Whether you’re an avid student of the Bible or never seriously studied scripture before, come and join us.
The Thursday Morning Bible Study is open to all. It is an intensive study of the Bible that is informed by insights from contemporary biblical scholarship, led by the Rev. Dr. Kovacs. The group selects a book of the Bible and then reads through it slowly, intentionally, aided by a scholarly work or commentary. The group meets in the Library, most easily accessed from the small parking lot on Frederick Road.
