Cross Vision: Making Sense of Old Testament Violence
How do we reconcile the “wrath” of God in the Old Testament with the message of Love and Peace that Jesus brings in the New Testament? How can we make sense of passages wherein God seems to order blood shed? Utilizing the cross of Jesus as the basis, this class takes a look at the Biblical as well as cultural and historical circumstances surrounding the writing of the Old Testament in light of what Jesus reveals through this crucifixion. This 10-week course begins on Monday, February 11 from 1:30-3:00 p.m. Please note: This course is an advanced theology course and the class “God of the Possible” is a pre-requisite. Cost of book is $15. Please register below no later than January 27th.
