"Opening the Bible"
An Interactive Workshop
Request an "Opening the Bible" workshop if you want a one-of-the-kind learning experience. Bible thinker Jake Doberenz will walk the audience, split into smaller groups, through the gritty details of investigating and interpreting a text. In the end, he doesn't tell you the meaning of the text: you discover it for yourself. Currently, Jake has two versions to choose from:
- The Good Samaritan: Interpreting Parables
- Falling Away Forever: Interpreting Letters
