Next Steps Academy (Tuesdays)

Bible Genres and How to Read Them (Part 1)

14 & 28 May 2024

Tuesdays, 7:30-9:30pm

The Space, Hope Church Kuching


God speaks to us through the Bible. But there are times we unintentionally misread the Bible. We miss out that the Bible was written to an audience in a different time and setting from us. The Bible is also written in different styles of writing, called genres, including Old Testament narratives (or stories), Epistles (letters), Psalms (songs), and Prophecy (poetic). In this course, we will learn skills to understand how the ancient writings were understood by the original recipients, and how they apply to us today.
At the end of the course, you will be able to:
(1) Understand the basics of Bible interpretation - the then (original listeners) and the now (today's audience).
(2) To gain a basic understand of the Biblical genres (styles of writing) and how to read each genre.
(3) To cultivate good Bible reading skills and habits

This course is open to all believers. Register by 7 May 2024, 2359 hrs.
