Women's Biblical Theology Workshop

When: Saturday, October 31 | 1:00–7:00 pm (Registration closes October 24)
Where: Online
Cost: 40 AED


What is Biblical Theology? Biblical theology starts at the beginning of the Bible and traces themes as they emerge and develop throughout the Bible. It understands the Bible in the context of its progressive revelation. For example, when we read in Genesis 3:15 that the seed of the woman will crush the seed of the serpent, it’s not clear to us at that moment who that seed of the woman is. But if we keep reading, we learn of a promised Messiah who will save his people. And as we continue to read, we get to the New Testament and learn that the promised Messiah is Jesus. Biblical theology understands the Bible as one story and it seeks to trace these storylines as they run through Scripture. It’s an exciting discipline and it’ll transform the way you read your Bible.


About the Workshop: Over three sessions led by Nancy Guthrie, a US-based Bible teacher, we will learn to identify major themes in the Bible that run from Genesis to Revelation. We won’t simply be sitting and listening. We’ll be interacting with each other and working to trace particular themes. The three sessions promise to be energetic and fun! They include:

  • Telling the Bible’s Big Story

  • Tracing the Bible’s Main Themes

  • Making the Bible’s Intended Connections

About the Teacher: Nancy Guthrie is a Bible teacher and conference speaker who has authored Bible studies and hosts the Help Me Teach the Bible podcast.


Scholarships: The cost for the workshop is 40 AED. If you would like to attend but need help paying for it, limited scholarships are available. You can request one when signing up. If you are able to sponsor someone, you can also do that when signing up.


Registration is closed. If you are interested to attend the class, please email elise@redeemerdubai.com.


 




About Redeemer Women's Ministry

The heart of Redeemer’s women’s ministry is that women would be equipped to know God, to love his Word, to follow Jesus, to care for one another, to make disciples, and to adorn the gospel through lives that reflect the beauty of Jesus Christ. To that end, we seek to aid women in their understanding of, knowledge in, and love for the Bible, and to help them live out their faith in a public way that calls others to follow Jesus. We also aim to connect women with one another so that they can experience deep community and encourage each other in the faith. In short, we seek to make disciples of Christ who go forth making disciples.


We currently host a monthly women’s Bible study, and we also have women’s small groups that meet throughout the city. All women are welcome to attend. If you’d like more information, email elise@redeemerdubai.com.


Monthly Women's Bible Study

Colossians instructs us, “do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day. These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ.”


In the days of the Old Testament, each of these practices, feasts, and festivals served as a shadow of what was to come. They gave a general idea of the expectation, the greater reality. Christ, in his fullness, brings the substance. We might say the Old Testament set the table for us, but Christ is the food, the nourishment — he is the feast!


Join us this year as we look at the different feasts and festivals of the Old Testament and explore how they point to Jesus.



JOIN US FOR OUR NEXT STUDY ON OCTOBER 23

From creation, through Leviticus, into the Gospels, God has always established rhythms to help us seek him. He set the calendar in the sky. He modeled a pattern of work and rest for us to follow. He gave us sacraments to help us remember him. The Sabbath, the feasts, and the festivals are all examples of ways God invites his people to change our pattern, to look up from our work and busyness, to stop gazing at ourselves, and gaze at him instead. 


Join us on October 23 as we study the rhythm God has put in place since creation and examine how we might use the Sabbath to rest, remember, reflect, and rejoice in Jesus’ finished work on the cross.


When: Friday, October 23 | 3:30–5:00 pm GST
