This class is for those who have little knowledge of Bible background or are starting out in their Bible reading journey. The 66 books of the Bible cover a vast time period in history and are written in a variety of literary types. Yet together they tell us consistently about the God who is communicating to us and calling people to Himself. This introductory class will review the Bible from two perspectives: the people of the Bible in their historical contexts, and the writings of the Bible in their broad literary types, for example, poetry or narrative. In this class you will build a basic background of Biblical knowledge that will help you to find your way around the Bible, and you will learn foundational strategies to read the different literary types found in the Bible. This is an opportunity to learn some Biblical basics in a friendly, supportive atmosphere.
