Bible Backstory – A totally new study of the Bible!

Bible Backstory Returns – Bible Backstory is… back! Our popular Bible overview course, usually taught Sundays during the Sunday School hour, will now be available online. If you’ve been in this year’s class all along, you can pick up right where we left off with Session 19a. If you hadn’t been part of the class but would like to join in, Dale’s put together four Review sessions (about 30 minutes each) which will summarize the Old Testament sessions for you. One or two new sessions (also about 30 minutes each) will be posted weekly.
Please ask any questions or comments in the comments section on YouTube. It’s a good way to really understand the Bible – give it a try!
