2PM, Sunday, May 6
If you’d like to prepare for our May 20 personalized tour of the Dead Sea Scrolls at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, led by Dr. Russ Arnold, join the Adult Education Committee from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday, May 6 at CBE for three 30-minute online lectures by Dr. Gary A. Rendsburg. We will allow time for discussion after each lecture. The three lectures are The Discoveries and their Significance, The First Seven Scrolls, and The Historical Backdrop of Ancient Judaism.
There will be snacks. And tables, in case you want to take notes.

The author of six books and more than 120 scholarly articles, Professor Rendsburg takes a special interest in literary approaches to the Bible, the history of the Hebrew language, the history of ancient Israel, and the development of Judaism in the post-biblical period
