Metaphysical Bible Interpretation
The Hebrew Scriptures
Beginning 6th September, 7-9pm
with Rev. Tom Thorpe
Continuing the following four Wednesday evenings
Cost: £30 (SEE students: £50)
Unity’s interpretation of the Bible, from a metaphysical perspective, is almost unique among those who follow Christian teachings.
Using the Metaphysical Bible Dictionary as our guide, free download from www.truthunity.net we take the stories and names of characters in the Bible and look at the inner, esoteric meaning, making the stories real for us today.
In Unity, the Bible is not taken as a literal and historical document. Instead we look at it allegorically and metaphysically, finding meaning for us and aiding us in solving life’s problems. We see the Bible as a record of the experiences and development of the human soul, from Genesis to Revelation; also as a treatise on our relationship with God.
Rev. Tom Thorpe’s deep appreciation and understanding of the Bible will guide us in deepening our knowledge of the Bible, to make it very real for us and our lives today. We can find aspects of ourselves in the characters, and relate to the stories being told. Instead of God being seen as a judging God, separate, and rewarding or punishing as seen fit, we understand the stories to be the Hebrews very personal experiences of God through the highs and lows of their development from a tribal group to an established society living under Roman rule, creating laws and a way of life in a very difficult world.
We begin our tour of the Bible with the Hebrew Scriptures.
