Old Testament Story Endings
The Rev. Travis Bott, Ph.D.
This class will investigate the different ways that Old Testament stories end. Some stories leave us hanging with unanswered questions, while others tie up all the loose threads with a sense of satisfaction. The twofold aim of the class is to become better readers of Scripture and to learn to read our lives in light of our true ending in God’s great story. Dr. Bott is professor of Old Testament at Nashotah House.
