Description: In this 5 week study, Adam Hamilton brings his modern perspective on this important set of ethics, examining the commandments in their historical context-considering the meaning of each commandment in Hebrew, unpacking how Jesus interpreted them, and showing how every given “thou shalt not” was intended to point to a life-giving “thou shalt”. He illuminates how, rightly understood, they are a way of ordering one’s life beautifully in the present day. There is a video segment for each class.
This class will be hybrid (in person at Manchester UMC, as well online via Zoom). In person participants will need to be prepared to wear a mask.
