The purpose of this bible study is to read the bible in a logical way as a narrative and as a religious text that has shaped the practices of those religions that follow it.
This is not a "Christian" bible study, although people of all religious backgrounds are welcome to participate. It is meant to be a study of the bible as a text, to better understand the book in a scholarly manner.
The discussion of origin is outside the scope of the study - this group is not for debating whether something is the word of man or god.
Discussions regarding interpretations of the text are entirely allowed and encouraged, this is the main purpose of the discussion.
Discussions regarding implications of different interpretations may arise but should be kept from disintegrating into which is the correct interpretation.
Dedicated to the scholarly study of the bible as text and the discussion thereof
