Temple School Intro to Scripture

CBMC is going to offer the Temple School SS400 Introduction to Scripture as an online, remote learning course. This will be a first for us, so we hope you’ll bear with us as we find out how this will best work.

You will need to sign up with Temple School as usual and get the book, but the course will provide the videos mentioned, so don’t purchase those.

Contact Jim Burdick to register.

Online class dates: August 12, 13, 14, 20, 21, 26, 27, 28

Class description: This eight-session course defines and explores the nature of scripture in the life of the church; helps students understand genre, literary context, and historical and cultural context; guides in the responsible use of the Old Testament and dealing with difficult textx; provides a sample small-group Bible study; and explores the function of the lectionary in sacraments, preaching, and teaching. Students practice an eight-step exegis process. There will be time to test your Zoom* capability before the class begins: August 9, 7-8 p.m.

* You will need an internet connection with the ability to view our signal, a camera to transmit your video, speakers to hear us, and a microphone so we can hear you.
