Spring 2017 LST Series
Does the Bible Tell Me So?
– Presented by Dr. Margie Ralph
Throughout history the Bible has been used to “take God’s name in vain,” to argue that God’s word supports what are actually human prejudices. In this three session class we will first examine how biblical passages have been abused in the past to argue for slavery and against women suffrage. We will then compare this method of interpreting Scripture to a contextualist’s method of interpretation of the same passages in order to determine what the inspired authors were actually teaching. With this knowledge in hand, we will examine how the Bible is being used to address some current controversial issues to see if these interpretations of Scripture are faithful to the inspired author’s intentions.
