The History of the English Bible series that was taught on Wednesday nights this past spring, will be offered again by Pastor Powell on three consecutive Sunday nights in August. The presentation will be from 6:00-7:30 PM on Sunday the 10th, 17th, and 24th.
This event is free and open to the public, no need to RSVP, all are welcome.
It will cover the history of the preservation and translation of the Bible from the original authors to the various English translations we have available today. It will serve as an introduction to the mountain of evidence that testifies to the accuracy of our modern text. It will always be a matter of faith to believe that the words of the Bible are God's word, but it need not be one to believe that they are the words of Moses, David, John, and Paul (etc.). The lecture is full of visual examples of the ancient manuscripts and explanations of the issues associated with copying and translating this crucial text. It is important that every Christian know and understand where the Bible that we place so much trust in came from, and why we can be confident in the words that it contains.
