John Walton, Wisdom for Faithful Reading: Principles and Practices for Old Testament Interpretation
You may never read the Old Testament the same way again. Using sound principles of interpretation points the way to stay focused on what the Old Testament text communicated to its original audience—and what it has to say for us today. When we submit ourselves to be accountable to the authors’ intentions, we experience the true authority ofScripture. Faithful reading fuels a faithful life.
Jennifer Dukes Lee, Growing Slow
This community on the book of Revelation will include a blend of historical, literary, and theological observations grounded in a close reading of the text. Particular attention will be paid to the book’s inaugural vision and its relationship to the letters to the seven churches, as well as to the rest of the work. Readers will gain an appreciation for the book as a combination of three genres (letter, prophecy, and apocalypse) and learn effective reading strategies for interpreting the text and applying its message today. The series will build on the foundation laid in the 2020 presentation at Okoboji Bible Conference.
