Among the questions much discussed among Bible-believing Christianity today are the following: How do we read the Bible? How do we distinguish between literal and figurative language? How does the original context (historical, literary, cultural) impact our understanding of Scripture? How does our context influence our reading of Scripture? Are there right and wrong ways to use Scripture? What are common fallacies?

In the Fall of 2015 the Reformed Bible College offered a course on the topic entitled “God’s Word in Writing”. In the winter of 2016 a follow up course was offered, entitled “Understanding God’s Written Word.” Both those courses were offered in the east end of the Fraser Valley. In the Fall of 2016 the course “God’s Word in Writing” was again offered, this time in the west end of the Fraser Valley. The plan is to offer again the sequel to that course, Understanding God’s Written Word.

This course is considered especially helpful for (aspiring) church leaders such as elders, for teachers, and for post-secondary students. Of course anyone interested is welcome to attend. Topics to be covered include: the ‘rules for exegesis’: the impact of language, genre, and culture on our understanding of Scripture. As illustrations for the influence of culture the final lecture looked at the topics of man’s creation (Genesis 2:7) and the role of women (1 Timothy 2:12).
