Yale Bible Study online series to expand in time for Lent
Pastors and church leaders who are frustrated in attempts to find appropriate adult Bible study materials, or who are having difficulty generating enthusiasm for Bible study, might want to mark their calendars for January 15. By then, the online Yale Bible Study http://www.yale.edu/yalebiblestudy/ series will have added brand new video and downloadable curriculum content that will make it an ideal resource for the Lenten season.
The Yale Bible Study is a collaboration between Yale Divinity School and The Congregational Church of New Canaan, CT, whose senior minister, Harold E. Masback, III, graduated from YDS in 1994. Each of the videos in the series features interpretive conversations between two Yale-related scholars—current or emeriti faculty or Yale alumni—based on eight selected focus passages from a single book of the Bible.
Over an eight-week period, adult Bible study groups can view one of the videos and follow the accompanying curriculum, which is available free for download on the YDS web site and includes:
Studies of five books of the Bible—and possibly six—will be available in January, including four that are currently online:
