[Questions at an Initial Meeting]


How Do You Understand the Bible?

How Does the Bible Understand Itself?

Is it a Book of Freedom or Imposition?



  • John Rankin will give a 15-20 minute introduction to these questions.

  • Any and all questions of John are then invited, and to catalyze discussion among those in attendance.

  • Open-ended thinking and honest relationships are the goal.

  • All are invited – 1) those who trust the Bible, 2) those who question it in part, and 3) those who are deeply suspicious of it. The Bible is here defined as the Tanakh and the New Testament.
