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.

Introduction:
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.
