Hour 1. “The Christian Bible’s Inspiration was the Glorious Bible of the Hebrew Nation”
Marvel at how the Christian Bible was retrofit onto the Tanach (the Hebrew Bible), and sharpen your ability to understand and articulate differences between Christian and Jewish Theology. Join the rare opportunity to read the text of the “New Testament,” discovering exactly how Jews and Christians can understand and productively discuss Christianity’s integration of and radical departure from Judaism 9:30—10:40 am
Hour 2. “Biblical Brains and Bombshells. Why Certain Biblical Personalities are Rarely Taught”
Tackle explosive tales of strategic planning and shocking behavior. Understand exactly why so many extraordinary characters who live in the Hebrew Bible are unknown to you. Threatened by the conduct and cunning of characters who engage in contract killings, murder of family members, cannibalism, and more, many teachers simply hide them from you! 10:50 am-noon
Hour 3. “Artful Encounters with the Hebrew Bible”
Fine tune, recognize and revel in your amazing powers of observation! Use art as a portal to deeper understanding of Biblical text and tales.
