- Understanding and Interpreting the Bible: In this interactive class, you’ll consider how someone’s identity, life experiences, and worldview shape the way they interpret the Bible. Alongside Bible scholars, theologians, and practitioners, you’ll explore tools for reading and teaching the Bible, foster your biblical imagination, and dig deeper into God’s love story with the world. Held on Zoom, four weekends in February-April 2021.
