Bible in Context
- Course Dates: Sat 25 February 2017, 9:30 am to 6:00 pm
This course will enable participants to develop their understanding of the nature of the exegetical task involved preparation for preaching, as well as developing their skills in the art of preaching itself.
This is a task which requires some understanding of the nature of the biblical and scriptural text, and of the task of exegesis. Accordingly, equal time will be devoted to the study of one major Old Testament text and one major New Testament text, alongside careful investigations of the nature of Scripture and the task of proclamation.
This Saturday teaching day offers the chance to learn alongside Sarum’s ordination and licensed lay ministry candidates. The day will consist of four sessions led by one or more of our Sarum staff and, on occasion, visiting lecturers.
The day is ideally suited to be used as a refresher, to stimulate new thinking, or as a ‘taster’ to what it is like to study at Sarum College. The day begins at 9.30am and finishes at 6pm. Participants are given 90 minutes free time at the beginning of the afternoon.
