PREREQUISITE: Completion of Grasping God’s Word. From God to Us tells the story of how we got our Bible. We’ll examine canon (which books belong in the Bible), textual transmission (how we can be sure we know what the original authors wrote), and translation (from the original languages to ours). You’ll grasp the process by which the canon of Scripture was confirmed by God’s people and the means by which the text has been preserved and passed down through the ages, and you’ll gain an informed understanding of English translations.

You’ll learn how the Bible hangs together in miraculous unity and how all the individual stories actually help us understand the big picture. 12 weeks; cost $20.
