Reading Prophetic Texts Seminar// Sunday 13 October
4:30 – 7:30pm
Dr Angela Sawyer, Lecturer in Old Testament at Stirling Theological College, will be leading us in a general introduction to reading a prophetic text such as Isaiah, covering why it is important in this day and age to engage with prophetic literature and addressing the literary, historical and theological basis of this text. This seminar will help us to know how to engage with these dynamic, strange, fascinating parts of the Old Testament, and in reading the Old Testament generally (reading poetry, prophecy, metaphors, ecstatic prophecy), the difference between the prophet and the message, and in dealing with difficult issues in the Old Testament (violence, judgement, suffering) in a workshop format.
We will share in a light dinner together during the seminar. You are encouraged to invite along anyone who may be interested in this fabulous opportunity to learn from an expert in Isaiah.
