Morling Forum: Hermeneutics and Genesis 1-3
1 March 2021
Come along to Morling's next public forum on Hermeneutics and Genesis 1-3 with Rev Dr Andrew Sloane, Lecturer in Old Testament and Christian Thought at Morling College.
This open forum will help you come to grips with the following questions, enrich your understanding of this important section of Scripture, and enhance your ability to use it in your work or ministry context.Making sense of the Bible for ourselves and others is central to Christian ministry (whatever form that might take). But it can be surprisingly complex. We need to grapple with big questions about how texts work, how we should interpret them, and how to help others make sense of the Scriptures. These questions are particularly acute when we come to read Genesis 1–3, especially as we consider its implications for issues such as science and the environment, marriage and family, and gender and sexuality.
