Six Wednesday evenings, beginning Jan. 18 and ending on Feb. 22. 7 – 8:30 p.m.
A survey of several slightly salacious scripture stories in six sessions.
While we don’t always talk about it, the Bible is full of stories of sex, intrigue, deception, lies, substance abuse, more sex and, more often than one would expect, rock and roll (or at least its ancient equivalent). The late Leonard Cohen capitalized on this in his song “Hallelujah”.This winter, we’re going to heat up our Wednesday nights as we consider questions like: just how it was that Jael enticed Sisera to spend the night in her tent; whether or not it was only Samson’s hair that Delilah cut off; why David danced naked in the streets of Jerusalem; why Noah got drunk after he got off the ark; and, what went on between Ruth and Boaz on the threshing room floor.
In addition to looking at stories from the Bible, we will also be looking at depictions of the stories in art, literature, and film.
