Understanding & Communicating the Scriptures
Wednesdays, September 18th to December 11th
6:30 – 8:00 PM
Facilitator: Pastor Paul Vallee
God desires to communicate with us. The problem is that we often misunderstand what He is trying to say. Of all the disciplines in life, a proper understanding of the nature of the Scriptures is critical for a right understanding of the nature of God. The reality is that all of us are biblical interpreters as we read the Bible, the issue is whether we are understanding this significant message to us by God.
Many people have a preconceived idea about God based on traditional and theological approaches that can distort truth. This course is designed to help you understand the historical/literary approach to Scripture in order to rightly interpret its meaning. It’s only from a correct interpretation that we can rightly communicate God’s purposes for our lives and others. The second part of the course is learning to develop a message from the biblical text.
