This study approaches the Hebrew Scriptures by inviting participants to hear the story of God and God's calling of the people of Israel through the many "voices" of the biblical text. Narrative, poem, history, and prophetic utterance all have their own distinctive characteristics and purpose, arising out of a particular historical, social, and cultural setting. To understand fully the story of God's covenantal relationship with Israel calls for listening to these various ways the story is told throughout the Old Testament. What does it mean to be God's chosen people? And how does the story of Israel's covenant with God inform our own identity as heirs of that covenant? Through this study, participants will be invited to listen afresh to the witness of the Old Testament to hear God's call and purpose for their own lives and to respond to that call. Sessions: 1. The Making of the Hebrew Bible 2. The Creation Story of Israel 3. Out of Bondage 4. Promise and Problem in the Land 5. Israel Has a King 6. Division and the Rise of Prophecy 7. Exile and Response 8. Restoration and Renewal
