Scripture as Conversation C4 2018

The intention of this course is to help us understand the relationship between scripture and myth and why that is relevant to us today. What are the underlying messages contained in these stories? What do ancient myths have in common with the Bible and, very significantly, where do they differ? We therefore have to explore the events that gave rise to our ancient stories.

We will also see how the scriptures begin to question the most fundamental assumptions of the myths of sacred violence.
