May 12th & 13th – Temple School class – Introduction to Scripture – will be held in Indianapolis.  All are welcome to attend.  Please let Cindy know if you plan to participate.

This Introduction to Scripture book is for students taking the course (as an individual or with a group) using the Introduction to Scripture video USB that features instructors Tony and Charmaine Chvala-Smith. The USB is available for purchase or may be available to borrow from your congregation or mission center.

This eight-session course defines and explores the nature of scripture in the life of the church; helps students understand genre, literary context, and historical and cultural context; guides in the responsible use of the Old Testament and dealing with difficult texts; provides a sample small-group Bible study; and explores the function of the lectionary in sacraments, preaching, and teaching. Students practice an eight-step exegesis process.
