Reading Scripture Together Series: The Great Flood
- Course Dates: Wed 23 June, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm
Many ancient cultures have stories of a primordial great flood. The Biblical story does more, however, than describe a physical catastrophe.
It contains deep theology where God radically changes how human beings and the divine will relate to one another.
In this session, we will do a careful reading of this story and its implications, including: the first Covenant, the Noahide laws, the end of vegetarianism, the first case of PTSD, and the curse of Canaan (and its terrible implications for contemporary racism).
This is definitely not the story you learned in Sunday School!
