Does the Old Testament puzzle, perplex or put you off? Come and discover some of its riches and beauty, as well as its agonised responses to suffering and violence. We will explore the contexts in which the Hebrew Bible was written, and then trace the different ways in which it has been interpreted in Jewish and Christian traditions. Anyone welcome – no prior knowledge required.
