Welcome to our 'Conversation at 10'

Date: 21st October 2020

Time: 10:00 - 10:45

Hello everyone and welcome again to our Wednesday 'Conversation at 10'


The foundations of our faith are built on the words of The Bible - the history contained in the Old Testament, the poetry of the Psalms, the story of Jesus' life in the New Testament, the accounts of the early church in Acts, the letters of Paul and others and finally, John's vision in the Book of Revelation.

During our tour of the Old Testament - tracing the journey of the Israelites from Genesis towards the Promised Land - taking in the Psalms, some of the Prophets and the beautiful Song of Songs - we learned something of those who wrote the books and about Jewish literature styles.

To look again at any of the short clips from The Bible Project click here
or go to Reading the Bible  from our Home page at any time.


Now we continue our exploration of the New Testament - a shorter journey, but not without its challenges!

Last week we learned about the historical and literary contexts of the New Testament letters and saw how these were exemplified in the earliest of these - Pauls' first letter to the Thessalonians.
Today we delve into Paul's much longer letter to the Romans in which he teaches about the life and example of Jesus and then about the practical application of those lessons in real life.

You might like to look also at the longer clip of a talk by Tim Mackie (one of the presenters of the Bible Project) discussing what the 'Good News' of the Bible means to us all.
