"Taking Biblical Literacy a Step Further: the Old Testament and the New Testament, a Two-Way Relationship"

9 July 2022 9.30am-1.00pm at Canterbury, St Mary Bredin

Our study morning will be led by two of our Diocese's own specialist Bible teachers, The Revd Dr Miriam Hinksman, Curate in the Bridge Benefice and Research Fellow and Visiting Lecturer at London School of Theology; and Revd Dr Stephen Laird, Chaplain at Kent University and Tutor in New Testament at St Augustine's College of Theology.

Going beyond the basics (but always relevant to preaching and ministry), there will be two sessions: the first, led by Miriam, will explore a theological framework for making sense of the Old Testament, with a view to helping people make connections between the (sometimes strange) world of the Old Testament, and the good news of Jesus Christ.

In the second session, Stephen will aim to simplify and explain the significance of some recent studies which focus on how and why the Gospel writers and Paul used the Old Testament: the matter is not as straightforward as you think, and this is currently one of the most hotly debated topics in New Testament Studies!
