In the Parable of the Good Samaritan, a lawyer tests Jesus by asking, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” Jesus then asks him, “What is written in the Law? How do you read it?” (Luke 10:26).

How would we answer Jesus today? How do we read the Bible? The “four senses of Holy Scripture” is a good start towards an answer.

This Lunch & Learn Series explores the four senses of Holy Scripture (the literal, allegorical, tropological, and anagogical) with an eye to their application in contemporary life.

June 6: The literal sense: What does the text say?
June 13: The allegorical sense: What does the text mean in terms of God’s revelation in Christ?
June 20: The tropological sense: What does the text mean in terms of life on earth?
June 27: The anagogical sense: What does the text mean in terms of life in heaven?

Join us online with The Rev. Canon Dr. Michael Hull, Principal and Pantonian Professor of Divinity at the Scottish Episcopal Institute (Edinburgh).

Four Thursdays in Trinitytide from 12:00 noon to 1:00 pm via Zoom.
