The Scriptures are full of symbols, metaphors and ideas that don’t make a lot of sense to our modern ears. From the evil of the oceans and living water to temples and gods, much of the language we find in the Scriptures points to a worldview very different from 21st century America. In this class, we’ll explore these ideas, examine where they influence the Scriptures. We’ll also find those same ideas in popular culture today, everywhere from books and movies to philosophy and politics. We’ll discover that the Scriptures truly are good news for all peoples in all times.
