A backstory is the history behind the story: the past behind the settings, characters, and events of a main story. “Backstory” at Commons takes us into the history of Christianity and the biblical texts to help us understand why and how we exist today.
If you are new to the Christian story or just looking to ground yourself in the backstory consider joining us for this four week course.
We will discuss:
1. the genres and themes of the Hebrew Scriptures,
2. the genres and themes of the New Testament,
3. the development of the canon and modern biblical texts,
4. basic theology focusing on views of the atonement.
Backstory runs at least once a year. Sign up below to be notified for the next course.
