About the Exploring Theology Winter 2022 course
Exploring the New Testament
Sarum College’s flagship Exploring Theology programme is for anyone who wishes to deepen their knowledge of and relationship with the Bible and Christian teachings through intellectually rigorous, interactive, and accessible learning.
This is a two-year course designed so that students can join in at any time. Year A focuses on Exploring the Bible, serving to equip students with knowledge and tools to read and encounter the Scriptures faithfully and fruitfully in their own lives.
Year B focuses on Exploring Christian Belief, which serves to help students see the bigger picture in relation to developments and themes within the Christian tradition.
In 2022 we are focusing on exploring the Bible and then the various ways we read and live with it. The Autumn 2021 term was an exploration of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, and now between January and March 2022 our attention is turning to consider the New Testament in specific detail, considering the theology it communicates and the role is has played in the lives of the Christian community over the centuries.
This course is run solely online via Zoom over 10 weeks each Tuesday evening from 7-9pm BST, with sessions being recorded and readings made available via SarumLearn to registered students.
There is an additional plan to offer 1-2 evening reflective/social sessions over a meal in Sarum College during the term, but these will be booked and paid for separately and will not be compulsory. Registration for these will be available via the online course portal, SarumLearn, after registration.
The course begins on 18 January 2022. Participants who register for this new term will be given access to the course from either between 13-17 December 2022 or after 10 January 2022, depending on the date of registration.
