The Witness of the Hebrew Bible for the New Testament Church: A Continuing Education Event
November 7 from 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m. at Elizabethtown College, co-sponsored by the college’s Department of Religious Studies and the Susquehanna Valley Ministry Center. $50.00 registration fee, $10.00 additional charge for continuing education units.
Although the church affirms that its scriptures include both the Old Testament, and the New Testament, Christians often downplay or ignore the witness of its “first testament” the Hebrew Bible. In a 2010 Brethren Press publication titled The Witness of the Hebrew Bible for a New Testament Church, 13 Brethren scholars addressed the question, “Of what relevance is the Old Testament for Christians today?”
Contributors to the book who will speak include Robert Neff, Jeff Bach, John David Bowman, Eugene Roop, and co-editors Christina Bucher, David Leiter, and Frank Ramirez.
