Hi Secular Bible Study Members,
Time to RSVP for our next SBS Meetup
on Tuesday 7:00 pm, Feb 23, at Trinity-UMC:"The Logos Made Flesh: Translation, Emphasis & Language"
Language is key to biblical as well as modern culture. Dean Berzins, graduate student of Philosophy at Southern Illinois University-Carbondale, will guide our discussion of how different translations and emphases of key passages and even of single words
in the Bible, focusing on the Gospel of John, radically change the message of Christianity and theology
. Dean will also lead us in asking, "Does John suggest that language is even at the heart
of Christianity: 'In the beginning was the word
...and the word became flesh
to "Rock the Narthex with Dean!" Word!
