Summer Biblical Study in Cambridge 2017
The programme for the 2017 Summer Biblical Study in Cambridge is now available here. The programme is operated by the Vacation Term for Biblical Study (VTBS), offering lectures on biblical studies topics by established scholars, language classes in NT Greek and biblical Hebrew (from introductory to advanced), and extra lectures (this year, on Luther and on Wagner and Theology). Plus, there’s Cambridge: Kings College chapel, punting on the Cam, visiting the White Horse Inn, the fabulous Fitzwilliam Museum, and much more.
The classes are aimed at people who simply want to learn something: “lay” people as well as ministers seeking some academic refreshment/updating. You can enroll for either of the two weeks or for both. There’s no assessment, so you can simply absorb what is provided.
Booking is now open and you can see fees and instructions for booking here. Places are limited, and there are already a significant number of advanced bookings made. It’s a great excuse to visit Cambridge. And the currently low value of the UK Pound against other currencies makes it a particular bargain for overseas visitors.
