In reading the Bible, our native cultures are lenses through which we understand God’s Word for us. In Southern California our congregations have members from diverse cultures. How do their cultural differences shape their interpretation of the Bible? How do we read and teach the Bible faithfully while honoring cultural differences? In this seminar we will deepen our appreciation of the Bible and our understanding of the role of culture in shaping our reading and teaching of biblical texts. Our goal is to work together to develop strategies for finding unity amid diversity. This course is a 1-unit class but can be taken as an audit. The course can also be taken for 2 credits, with additional assignments and permission from the instructor.
