Lenten Bible Study
New Bible Study: Starting this month, the Tuesday and Thursday Bible Study groups will return to our study: The Beginnings of Judaism.
The roots of Judaism reach back to the Hebrew Bible—also known as the Old Testament by Christians. For thousands of years, Jews have looked to these scriptures for their origins, and have located in them the tenets of their faith. The Bible provides Jews reasons for sadness and joy, wisdom, and most of all, a profound belief in what God expects of them and has promised to them.
Bible Study for Lent is Beginnings of Judaism. Professor Isaiah M. Gafni of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem explores the evolution of an ancient faith and we discover a tradition of vigorous and joyous debate—where reinterpretation coexists with profound acceptance of the original instructions from God regarding the practice of faith.
