Evening Class: Does the Old Testament leave a disturbing legacy?
7 May 2014
These sessions will be run by Dr Peter Lockwood (Lecturer in Old Testament) and will deal with a representative sample of Old Testament texts that careful Bible readers invariably stumble over. These are the texts that portray God as a warrior and appear to glorify war (Joshua 2), the texts that appear to condone the oppression of women (Judges 19), the texts that have been used to justify the abuse of children (Genesis 22), and the texts which describe apparently random acts of divine vengeance against those who stray (Numbers 25:6-9). These texts, and others like them, seem to be at odds with the God who is ‘merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness’ (Ex 34:6). The texts will be looked at contextually and theologically with a view to discerning their vital role in the Bible and their message for today’s church.
When: Wednesday Nights 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Dates: May 7 - 28, 2014 (4 weeks)
Venue: Australian Lutheran College, 104 Jeffcott St, North Adelaide (enter via Ward St)
Cost: $40 per person ($25 concession)
