Here at Immanuel we place a high value on the study of Holy Scripture and offer a number of opportunities for Bible Study.
Journey through the Hebrew Scriptures
If you have ever tried to read the Bible on your own, and if you decided to start at the beginning (someone once said that that's a very good place to start but I don’t think they were referring to Genesis), you may have noticed that its a bit difficult to get through. Often times the Hebrew Scriptures or "Old Testament" seems strange, foreign, or just downright confusing. Furthermore, the Bible is translated from ancient languages, from a culture that existed thousands of years ago and thousands of miles away from here.
Thats what makes Bible Study such an important part of our lives as Christians. It is in a Bible Study situation that we can look at the Biblical text and ask those questions that come up as we read, in hopes that we might gain deeper understanding of the text.
Our current Bible study is meant to give each participant a sense of the overall story of the Hebrew Scriptures starting with creation, and working through the many twists and turns in the history of Israel including the Exodus, the wanderings in the wilderness, the conquest of the promised land, the monarchy, and the Babylonian exile to name a few. Our hope in doing a study like this is that you may come to understand the overall story of the Old Testament and feel more comfortable with it.
