The Blessings of Biblical Study
A Word From Isaiah MoffattAgain, who better to share about the experience than someone who took it themselves. This week we have one of our students sharing about his experience.
"O.T. Lit. was an awesome class! There was a ton of information to take in (and I definitely don’t remember everything) but it was great to help me understand the big picture of the Old Testament. Most of the time when reading the OT, I used to get lost on the meaning and confused by all the jumping around in stories. Now I feel like I got a pretty good understanding of the small details and culture of that time. The stories I already knew have begun to take on so much more meaning as I see them in the big picture."
"It was pretty cool to see how God hasn’t changed from the Old Testament, and remains the same loving God even now. In most of the lectures we were going through all the stories in O.T. one by one and getting a better understanding of each. My favourite part was reading all the stories with the class and hearing all the questions we had and hearing how even small details changed the meaning.
A lot of questions seemed to point towards the culture of the time and a lot of understanding the Old Testament was actually reached by figuring out the culture. Don Taylor was an awesome Professor and if I go to Briercrest next year, I will definitely take one of his classes!"
Huge thanks to Isaiah for sharing his thoughts on the course. We are big on being able to practice what we are learning, but we are also big on making sure we are doing everything we can to learn and study with excellence. It has been so great to watch the students this year rise to the academic challenge and commit themselves to learning all they can.
Excellent Leadership on Display
We invited the entire Camp Qwanoes staff team to watch the film for the first time on their last day of class. It was definitely very exciting.
I look forward to sharing more with you soon,
