IN-DEPTH STUDY OF THE BOOK OF NUMBERS, BEGINS THIS FALL-Study of the Old Testament illuminates and deepens your understanding of the New! Numbers, the fourth book of the Old Testament, is 36 chapters long and chronicles the amazing patience and protection of God, Our Loving Father, in the face of the disobedience and even rebellion of His children. (As a child (and perhaps as a parent) who of among us could not relate to this topic?) You'll learn about life in the wilderness, the significance of the Nazarite vow (Samuel and Daniel), the dedication of the wilderness tabernacle (the first Hannukah), the spies who incited rebellion, the disobedience of Moses and the adventure of Balaam and his donkey. And these are just a few of the subjects covered. Join us at 5:00 p.m. every Wednesday, beginning September 9 for 36 weeks of interdisciplinary study from a Hebrew perspective.


An in-depth study of the Book of Deuteronomy begins on Friday, July 10 at 8:30 a.m. in Room 116. The only textbook is your own Bible, any version will do. If you want to take notes, you can bring a notebook or write in the margins of your Bible. There are 49 lessons each structured as a lecture (about an hour in length) with visuals displayed on a large screen TV. Because the lessons are on-line, it's easy to keep up from your own computer if you need to miss a lesson. For more information contact Nancy Palmer at 704-458-5662 or
