Our latest series on Theology on Tap discussed some of the basics of what it means to be Lutheran. We broke down the phrase – We are justified by grace, through faith, for Christ’s sake, apart from works – and tackled one of those clauses each week for four weeks. The list of questions from the weekly handout can be found here.
In this class we explored the ways in which we read and interpret scripture. Together we looked at important questions like: What is the Canon? How did it come to be? What do we do when the Bible contradicts itself? How do we understand the hardest stories in the scriptures?
