Rabbinical tradition teaches that the revelation of scripture is the beginning of a conversation, a process of seeking and listening for meaning.
In her book “Midrash: Reading the Bible with Question Marks” Rabbi Sasso writes, “By dwelling in the text, by interpreting it and making it come alive, the people came to encounter the divine and continue a conversation begun long ago at Sinai…Listening to God’s echo in our lives, approaching Scripture as if God were speaking to us, is the beginning of midrash.”
Everyone is invited to join this conversation in our new bible study beginning 3 October on Thursday mornings at 10.00 am.
We will be using Rabbi Sandy Eisenberg Sasso‘s book “Midrash: Reading the Bible with question marks”. Rabbi Sasso explores how Midrash originated and how it is still practiced today, and offers new translations and interpretations of twenty essential, classic midrashic texts. You will never read the Bible the same way again!
The cost of the book is $18. Please Contact the church office or Elizabeth to register your interest.
