Uppity Women of the Bible: Song of Songs
Sunday mornings, April 29-May 13

In this second installment of our exploration of women in scripture, we’ll consider some of the surprising elements of Song of Songs. We’ll also look at the reasons for including this book in the Bible, who the lovers might be, the difficulties of interpreting this book, and the disadvantages of reading this book in a language other than Hebrew. This class employs the video series "Uppity Women of the Bible," featuring Bible professor Dr. Lisa Wolfe. Class participants will benefit from reading Song of Songs before the class (try https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Song+of+Solomon+1-8&version=NRSV). Breakfast is available in the parish hall starting at 9:00am.

Presenter: Nedra Roberts. Nedra is a playwright and English teacher.
