Have you ever considered how central food and drink is to the stories, laws, poetry and images of the Scriptures? In this course we explore how food and drink functions in encounters, in moments of anxiety, in divine promise and so much more throughout the Bible. We will look at food and drink in the Torah, the historical books, the wisdom tradition, the prophets and Psalms and the New Testament. If you have to miss a session, you can watch "on demand" at home later.
