Women in the Bible
Studying the female figures in the Bible has gained a lot of interest in recent years, and keeps raising important questions for contemporary followers of Christ. Who were these women in the Bible? How should we understand their stories? What do they have to say to women and men in the contemporary church?
If you have ever wondered if Mary Magdalene was a 'bad girl' or if Bathsheba was to blame for the affair with David, this is the course for you. This Cliff College short course will delve deeply into the world of these and other biblical characters and address some deep-seated beliefs and questions regarding these topics. We will also raise the important question of how the Bible can be applied to the contemporary lives of women in the church, especially when in the past these texts have been used to harm women, rather than empower them.
Participants on this short course will be exploring these issues through lectures, seminars, and workshops.
The weekend is open to both women and men.
