The Bible in troubled times
St Mary's Centre

Tuesday 8 October
- An exquisite story of famine, migration, immigration, renewal, empowerment, and above all love - Ruth the Moabite.
Tuesday 15 October
- Is there sexism in the Bible? Undoubtedly. Is there antisemitism in the Bible? Let's find out.
Tuesday 22 October
- The last laugh - Rachel and Laban's household gods (a wonderful example of women's humour); the case of the midwives, Shiphrah and Puah, and a joke hidden in the Hebrew; the hilarious tale of Jonah, with a very serious and challenging question at the end.
