Description

The Scriptures often make general reference to “all nations,” and yet they are also at times quite specific about particular nationalities, ethnicities and races. In this session, key texts from the Old and New Testaments will be considered on this topic. Why are the Scriptures, and especially the Gospels and Acts, so particular about ethnicities? Such details will be explored, and key insights will be offered for life and witness today.
