SUMMER 2018: Science in the Bible

The Bible has served as a guide for many people of the world for millennia. It is now possible to explain—scientifically—specific events considered “miracles” in the Bible. The topics to be explored are: the Creation, Moses’ Ten Plagues and parting of the Red Sea, Noah’s flood, and the Star of Bethlehem. It is hoped, by examining these events and participating in class discussions, that the significance of these events will be better understood.
