Those who couldn’t keep their eyes off the clock in grade school shouldn’t fear next week’s “Walk Through the New Testament” seminar.
The hours just fly by when Dr. Lowell Stime is at the board.
“He’s a very gifted teacher. You think you couldn’t sit from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and not get tired, but he’s so interesting (that you don’t),” said Doris Fox, chairperson of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church’s seminar series. The seminar will be held at the church on the corner of 26th Avenue and Pines Road.
Stime is an instructor at the Lutheran Bible Institute of Issaquah. He leaves the West Side fairly often, though, to teach and travel abroad. Stime also frequently guides Middle East study tours.
The lecture that Stime will give next Saturday is a follow-up to Holy Trinity’s Old Testament seminar, held in February. Fox said that the seminars give students a whole new view of the books of the Bible.
“You get a picture of the whole thing, and you get a deeper understanding of what it’s about,” she said. “It seems like we needed to do the same with the New Testament to complete it.”
To help paint that whole picture, Stime will also discuss the time span between the writing of the two testaments, giving students a look at what historians have learned about the period.
For the last lecture the church sponsored, more than 100 students showed up. “This time, we’re hoping for at least 120,” Fox said.
So organizers know what to expect, people are encouraged to register early by calling 927-7369. There will, however, be a chance to register before the class at 8:30 p.m. The fee is $10 per person, and child care will be provided.
