Metaphysical Bible Class (8 weeks)

$125 (discounted price)

The Bible is unquestionably one of the most important books in the Western world. Our modern culture is based on the Bible and our social mores are descended from the Bible’s teachings. Our legal system is based on the Mosaic Law of the Old Testament. Our literature is heavily influenced by the Bible – many novels have biblical themes in their stories and titles; even the Gettysburg Address follows the form and cadence of the King James Version of the Bible

Too often we forget than in addition to it being a sacred text and historical account, the Bible is also a great psychological resource for living a better life when we apply the teachings and understand the inner meaning – beyond the story.

This course examines the familiar stories in the Christian Bible and interprets them in a different way. They are not treated as literal truth, or religious dogma, but as stories with profound metaphysical and spiritual messages.
