You are invited to a Bible Study on The Story of King David via the First and Second Books of Samuel at Holy Trinity Anglican Church, 10037 84 Ave, in Old Strathcona, on Wednesdays, beginning January 4, 2023, at 10:30 am.
In this study, we will read through the longest single narrative in the Bible, taking us from the time of the Judges through the establishment of the monarchy in Israel, to the reign of King David, and his death. While not ignoring the theological framework, the emphasis will be on the text as a story. To take part fully, participants should read each section before the session. Parking is free and the coffee is hot AND we offer morning prayer, at 10 am, that you are welcome to join!
