Psalms 31 -41
„See, I have come with a scroll written about me" (Ps 40:8)
|THE BIBLE WEEK
We study Biblical texts from the per-spective of Jewish and Christian traditions and challenge it and our-selves through insights from literature, art, psychology and other dis-ciplines.
This year’s text: Psalms 31 – 41.
The study groups in the morning ad-dress the issues raised by these texts, so that we can learn together. Jewish and Christian resource per-sons help with the text study, dis-cussion and exchange of experi-ence.
We invite all those interested in the Bible and Jewish-Christian dialogue.
