KEYS TO HANDLING VIOLENCE IN THE
BIBLE
A New Discussion Series with Rev Paul
Four Thursday Evenings:
May 10, 17, 24, 31
Join us for a simple potluck meal (optional),
5:30 - 6:00 pm
Discussion from 6:00 - 7:15 pm
in Woodhull Hall

Can I reject the violence in the Bible and still be a
Christian?
This four-evening discussion series will answer with a
strong YES!

Each week we’ll look at interpretive keys providing
the tools we need to transcend Biblical violence,
including:

May 10 - Learning to view God's revelation in the Bible
like a topographical map with higher and lower
elevations, rather than a flat, one-dimensional text
where each verse is of the same importance.

May 17 - Learning to see the Bible as the written
record of the wrestling match between God's radical
love and the human addiction to violence.

May 24 - Learning to read the Bible as Jesus did.

May 31 - Learning to see the Bible in its entirety as the
gradual revelation of God's nonviolent nature.
