What to Cover in the Studies?

In our first session, we will brainstorm with the group as to what precisely the group would like to cover in our sessions: topics (e.g., ethics and scripture, theologies of the Bible, homosexuality and the Bible, the role of women in the Bible, when and how the Gospels were composed, creationism and ID, John's "anti-Jewishness," etc.), passages or books of the Bible (e.g., Genesis 1, Job, Mark's ending, etc.). I am posting this so that people here have the opportunity to think about it prior to the first meeting. If there is something you absolutely want to cover and discuss, feel free to post something here, letting us know now.

There will be a variety of opinions here, and we, the facilitators and organizers, are not seeking to sway anyone to think one way or the other, with regards to certain topics. In other words, we'll strive to show various sides of issues as honestly as possible in our approach: Why folks think this and not that, what leads one to hold this point of view, rather than another. We're hoping that in dialogue, when the Bible study is topical, individuals of the group will do so, as well. However, such a position will not deter us from, for example, inviting a liberal Christian guest speaker to discuss how an interpretation of scripture condones homosexuality, but neither from inviting a conservative one who might offer the opposite point of view. This, however, we would like to leave up to the group.
