Come join us this Fall for an exciting new parish bible study on The Women in the Old Testament. The women in the Old Testament, too long invisible, have rich stories that are vital to the on-going revelation of God's relationship with a covenant people. Women in the Old Testament introduces students to some biblical women. Here, we meet mothers and wives, queens and slaves, prophets and warriors, powerful women and victims; women whose stories offer us courage and insight.
In Women in the Old Testament we explore not only the lives of such well-known women as Sarah, Deborah, Ruth, Eve, and Naomi, but also those of lesser-known women such as Michal, Tamar, and Jezebel. Each of these women has unique characteristics; each of their stories is food for our imaginations.
Biblical stories help us imagine the relationship of God with human beings, and they give us words to describe our own relationship with God. Join us in exploring The Women in the Old Testament. We will meet on Tuesdays from 6:45 to 8:15 pm. Our first session will be on September 24 in the John Paul II room.
We invite you to join us even if you’ve never participated before.
