Belief in conjunction with St Albans Study Centre are running the following course.
The Book of Isaiah (SACT & SACT+)
Starting Wednesday , 14 November 2018
As the Church enters Advent and Christmas, so we will hear much in our readings and hymns from the book of Isaiah, in which Christians have found prophecies pointing to the birth, life, and death of Christ. It is therefore not surprising that it is sometimes referred to as the ‘Fifth Gospel’. More recently, scholars have identified different parts to the book and even different ‘Isaiahs’, and have sought to understand the prophecies in their immediate context. All agree that it contains some of the most profound imagery of the bible. This course aims to open up some of these aspects of this rich book. It is particularly geared to those who have a grounding in the Old Testament through previous study.
Please note that this course does not take place in St Albans.
