Here Be Dragons

dragon_fireHere is the PPT for the third and final installment of my recent Wednesday-night Bible study series, “Monsters: A Biblical Bestiary.” I think people have appreciated the series, even though it has been a bit challenging for some.

We looked at how to study the Bible in terms of translation, textual criticism, and understanding the cultural context in which it was written.

In “Here Be Dragons,” I talked about what happens when the monsters we find in the Bible are there because the biblical writers actually believed in monsters. In the process, we look a bit at the fact that the Bible describes the world in terms of ancient conceptions of cosmology, meteorology, and physiology.
