Bible Unzipped: November 2019
This month we will be looking at the New Testament:
Peter Cousins: “Learning to Love that Long List of Names in Romans 16.” Do you get bored by lists of names in the Bible? Do you skip them in your Bible readings? The list of names in Romans is fascinating. Really! Although the Bible does not tell us much about the people involved, digging into the sociology of Romans times through the archaeology of places like Pompeii and Rome suddenly they emerge from the pages of the Bible as flesh and blood individuals living in busy times.
Julia Bartholomew: “What exactly is ‘breaking bread’ (Acts 2:42-47)?” We assume we know the answer to that, but digging deeper into the New Testament reveals more than you might think.
Note: Bible Unzipped is free and open to everyone. It aims to go deeper than you would find in a normal church service, and operates pretty much on the level of a Bible College without the formality, and no exams. Newcomers are always welcome.
