Feb. 17 Gathering: Time to go all “Old Testament”


It’s an enigma, wrapped in a mystery, buried in a quagmire: what on earth are we to make of the Hebrew scriptures, or, as we call them now, the Old Testament?

For modern-day Christians, not much is more misunderstood, misinterpreted, or mistreated than the Old Testament canon. We don’t know quite what to do with stories of God ordering genocide, or the ways the writers use myth and legend, or the work of the prophets. And what in the world is up with Song of Songs?

This week at New Wineskins, we’ll take a bird’s-eye view of the Old Testament, try to unpack some if its content and context, and see what it might still have to say to us in a postmodern, post-Christian world.

Join us this Sunday, Feb. 17, in the 167 Side Room of the Marietta Brewing Company as we give some love to the Old Testament!

Happy Half-Hour: 6:30pm

Conversation Begins: 7:00pm
