Pentateuch Study: Sunday, September 30th @ 9 am: The Pentateuch is comprised of the first five books of the Bible: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. It is the foundation of the Bible, not merely because it comes first, but because it establishes the basis of God’s message to the world. Over the next 5 weeks, we will discuss its author, literary form, and historical content. We will also study 5 themes that help us understand the Pentateuch better: Word, Covenant, Kingdom, Redemption, and Revelation. This study will be fun! We will spend time in prayer and discussion. We will even watch videos! There will be no required reading or homework, but suggested reading and application will be provided. All people are welcome!
