Biblical Study Break: Migration in the Hebrew Bible

  • Course Dates: Mon 8 May 2017, 1:00 pm to Thu 11 May 2017, 2:00 pm

Our newspapers are full of the stories of displaced people. The media speaks of an immigration crisis in Europe although other regions take in manifold the number of people who are on the move.

When the book of Genesis is mentioned most people do not immediately think of migration. Even so Abraham, Isaac and Jacob are all immigrants.

Casey Strine has done in depth work on this and will share his insights during this study break. The week will start with more general sessions on migration in the Hebrew Bible led by Karl Möller who is currently writing a book on this subject.
