5:30pm - 7:00pm
Eve may be the most maligned woman in our collective imagination. Why? This interactive Bible study combines scholarship, images, and discussion in a lively exploration of Genesis 3. With a focus on text, translation, and interpretation, the Rev. Dr. Julie Faith Parker, Professor of Biblical Studies at the General Theological Seminary, will explore the early history of viewing Eve as evil. Together we’ll discover how so little of what we “know” about Eve is actually in the Bible. Sponsored by PrimeTime (55+) Fellowship.
