DRAMA OF SCRIPTURE
This class will be an examination of the Christian story taken as drama. We will move through the Bible showing how God has dealt with mankind since the beginning and through the church today. What we will see is a coherent narrative of God’s ongoing work. After God created the world and humans rebelled, God set out to restore what he had made. In some ways this will be a survey of the Bible but placed in the context of a drama. By looking at this drama we can see how God has had his hand in history and how we fit into his plan. It is a beautiful story filled with God’s love and caring, pointing to a bright future.
