Being Bereans - Reading and Understanding the Bible

  • All Saints Community Centre 338 Church Street Palmerston North New Zealand (map)

By Pauline Simonsen

When the Jews in Berea were confronted by the apostle Paul with a strange and fascinating new teaching about Jesus of Nazareth, “they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true” (Acts 17:11). Wouldn’t it be great to be a Berean – eagerly searching the Scriptures for truth, understanding what we are reading and seeing how it all fits together into a coherent narrative? Having tools to unpack tricky passages; learning how to interpret the ancient texts? This course introduces those tools and gives you a framework to interpret the Bible – from obscure Old Testament texts to the core New Testament teachings of the gospels. You don’t need to be a Bible expert to understand God’s Word!
