Is your Bible Study group or adult Sunday School class ready to take their biblical study to a deeper level? Ready to step away from a published guide to do their own research and interpretation? Ready to be open to new understandings that can be applied within their own context? This course might be just what you need! In this Advanced Lay Servant course, participants will gain an understanding of biblical interpretation and why it is important, develop skills in interpreting the Bible message, practice biblical interpretation in a group setting, and explore the use of relevant study resources. The course will use the book Biblical Interpretation: A Roadmap*, which asks key questions about scripture, readers of the Bible, and how those two interact. It covers both the interpretation method and gives examples of its application. Participants will work daily through private journals, discussion board questions, and video lectures to cover the ten contact hours of engagement with the course leader, and will have many opportunities to connect with and learn from each other.
