February 6, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - February 13, 2017 @ 7:30 pm

LiewBenny200x300What is feminine vs. masculine? How should Christians understand sexual orientation? What about divorce or remarriage? For centuries, people have drawn on certain infamous texts from the New Testament to answer these questions for Christian communities and in philosophical and theological debates. In this course, we will be focusing on these texts and the debates they have sparked while considering the complicated issues of interpretation including language, historical context, and authority/agency.
