Reply To: How, if at all, will you take the information you’ve learned in this course and apply it to how you read and interpret scripture? What, if anything, will you pass along to your own community?

Rebekah, I agree with your statement about intentionally discussing and seeking the Hebraic context of scripture in a community. As a new Christian, I’ve emphasized individual Bible study over communal study. I think part of this is because of what I’ve been taught and the nature of how Western Christianity is structured. The other part being I enjoy working by myself! I think one way a communal approach could be employed is by asking other congregants after a sermon their thoughts, reflections, and questions specifically about the sermon. I think Bible study groups are also important opportunities to foster Bible literacy and fluency.
