Bible High Def Logo.jpg

The Bible has relevance for all cultures, but sometimes we forget that it arose out of a culture very different from our own. Understanding how that culture “worked” won’t change our understanding of the Bible so much as sharpen it—much like a high-definition TV sharpens our view of the picture. Drawing on our experiences living in African cultures that are closer in some ways to the Biblical culture than our own, we will explore several big-picture cultural themes that can enhance our understanding of the Biblical text. Then, as a group, we will apply these themes to a variety of Bible stories so we can begin to see the text in high definition.
