Frankly, it’s been quite a while since the idea of attending (yet another) Bible study has really captured my imagination.
But I am excited about the potential of a new one I’ll be checking out tomorrow afternoon.
Same Words, Different Meanings is a monthly “interfaith textual study” hosted by the Jewish Community Federation in Rochester. During each session, both Christian and Jewish leaders teach from the Hebrew scriptures and the New Testament. It’s billed as a “unique opportunity to understand texts from the Tanach (Hebrew bible) and their different interpretations in Christian scriptures… clarifying points of similarity and differences between the two traditions.”
Unfortunately, I’m a little late in joining the party. Tomorrow’s study is the last one for the season. But since the topic is Christians as the New People of God, I’m sure it won’t dissapoint!
