Scripture and Tradition: What the Bible REALLY says!
Tradition is a debated topic in our day. Some think that it is a way of limiting life and maintaining rigid order, while others are fascinated with it as a link to the past. Christians also quarrel about its importance, particularly when they are thinking about the authority of Scripture and the life of the Holy Spirit. This course will read the Old and New Testaments to see how they deal with tradition and what they have to say about it. Be prepared for some surprises, and even an exposé of mistranslations of Biblical passages due to the bias of translators in this matter! /
This lecture series will be lead by Dr. Edith Humphrey, William F. Orr Professor of New Testament at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, on Tuesdays 10:00 a.m. - 12:15 pm, April 9 - 30th.
