Historical Bible Facts                                    

Wednesday                                      PR192059            


June 5, 12

Instructor(s): Wayne Moyer

This course will aim to provide answers to questions people have about Biblical characters and events that the Bible doesn’t expound on. For example: How and when did the Bible become a book, especially the New Testament letters? Why are there only four Gospel accounts? Didn’t the other apostles write about Jesus? What happened to all of the apostles? Where did they go? How did they die? What happened during the 430 years of silence between the Old Testament book of Malachi and the New Testament book of Matthew? Why do some Bibles have Apocryphal Books and others do not? Are numbers representative of anything specific in the Old and New Testament? Students will examine other historical references to Biblical characters and events that are not found in the Bible.

This course examines the life of the Apostle Peter as depicted in Luke's writing of the Acts of the Apostles.

Instructor(s): Dr. Edward Garrett, Jr.

Can you image how people really dressed in Biblical times? Have you wondered what the fashion-minded and the average man and woman wore 2500 years ago? Here is the opportunity to learn about the clothes, the styles of the rich and poor of the Bible. We will examine the headwear and footwear for men and women. We don't want to miss exploring the accessories--jewelry, ornaments, and cosmetics. What a fascinating, informative, and educational experience!
