‘Witness of Hebrew Bible’ event is offered by SVMC.

The Susquehanna Valley Ministry Center (SVMC), in collaboration with Elizabethtown (Pa.) College Department of Religious Studies, will host a continuing education event titled "The Witness of the Hebrew Bible for a New Testament Church." The event takes place Nov. 7 from 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m., on the Elizabethtown College campus in the Susquehanna Room, with speakers who contributed to a recent Brethren Press book of the same name.

In the 2010 Brethren Press publication, 13 Brethren scholars addressed the question, "Of what relevance is the Old Testament for Christians today?" Robert Neff and Eugene Roop will speak to this question in the morning session, and Jeff Bach will address Brethren approaches to the Old Testament from a historical perspective. Afternoon sessions will include two panel discussions on the themes of holiness, peacemaking, education, and our concept of God. In addition to the morning speakers, other panelists include John David Bowman, Christina Bucher, David Leiter, Mike Long, Frank Ramirez, Bill Wallen, and David Witkovsky.

Cost for the event is $50 plus $10 if continuing education credit is requested. Contact SVMC at 717-361-1450 or to register by Oct. 24.
