Six thousand years in six hours.

Last year a lot of interest was expressed in a short beginner, or refresher course for people wanting to familiarise themselves with the Bible.

We have come up with a short course of six, one hour sessions to run once a month between now and the summer which is  designed for anyone with an interest whether or not they are ‘religious’.

The first session was on the Geography of the Bible – where did it all happen? 

Up until the mid 1800’s Nineveh was considered a mythical city much as people view Atlantis today, but archeologists dug up the remains of the city of Nineveh and with it reignited interest in the authenticity of the Bible’s geography.

Places change name and it is possible to forget that the places you read about are still real places today. Tonight we go in search of Eden, Ararat, Ur, Haran, Canaan, Philistia, Egypt, Edom, Moab, Elam, Damascus, Nineveh, Babylon, Tyre, Greece, Medea, Persia, Judaea, Galilee, Rome, Asia, Ethiopia, Antioch, Ephesus, Corinth, and ancient Spain.

People came along to enjoy chatting it through for an hour over a cup of coffee… cost, and no pressure.

Following sessions will be on the History, Writing, People, Books, and Main Events of the Bible.
