Adult Bible Class -- New series begins March 8

Starting on Sunday, March 8 we will begin the series, “Bible Symbols.”  While the Bible is written in clear language, it sometimes uses symbolism to reveal God's word to us.  Such symbolism, while it can be confusing, also serves to illustrate God's mercy and salvation to us.  In order to gain a deeper understanding of God's mercy and salvation, it serves us well to be familiar with the Bible's symbolism and word pictures.

The book “God's Imagery” will not be necessary for the class, but you might find it helpful to read through each chapter before heading into the class to foster more in depth discussion.  Copies of "God's Imagery" can be ordered through Northwestern Publishing House (www.nph.net).  The link to the book is here.


The proposed schedule for the class is here:

March 8)    The Lord makes himself known

March 15)  Sacrifices: Symbols of sin and salvation
