Behind The Book(s): A History of How Our Bible Came to Be

Thu., February 9th, 202310:30am – 11:30am

In this winter’s session of Word with the Pastors we’ll take a look “behind” the scriptures to examine and discuss what, when, and who it was that determined the Bible to become…well…the Bible. For instance, what and who determined which books made it in? Which writings, if any, were left out, and why? We’ll also take a tour of different English translations. Why are there so many? What’s the difference? And we’ll examine key historical moments including the importance of Martin Luther and the Reformation in telling the great story of the book.
