The Hebrew Scriptures (known as the “Old Testament” in the Christian world) are at the root of three major world religions—Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Hebrew Scriptures are a collection of fascinating and sometimes confusing stories, poetry, wisdom sayings, and inspired visions. While some stories in Hebrew Scriptures are little known outside scholarly circles, others have become commonplace in conversion, e.g. “David vs. Goliath.” Students will explore the history and development of Hebrew Scriptures, thereby acquiring a solid foundation for continuing study and exploration.

Required Text/Readings available in the bookstore: Reading the Bible Again for the First Time, by Marcus Borg, The Bible - in one of the following translations. (The NRSV: New Revised Standard Version; or the NET: New English Translation)

Love offering – No prior experience necessary – Bring a friend
Facilitated by Jane Reeder
Join us in our Inquiry Circle at Unity in which we gather with others committed to questioning their thoughts—to gain clarity and reduce stress. Thought patterns seem hard to change precisely because we still believe these stressful thoughts. However, would you still believe them if you could see that they are not true? And if this were simple to learn, how might it change your life? Come find out. Meetings will be punctuated by discussions, video, and audio materials of Byron Katie.
