Waiting and Hoping: Reading the Bible in the Season of Advent
Anna Marsh, Visiting Assistant Professor of Old Testament
Advent is a season of waiting, of expecting, of anticipating, of hoping. Anna Marsh, visiting assistant professor of Old Testament at Luther Seminary, describes Advent as a season when we together, as church, await the coming of the Christ child.
But we all hope and wait for lots of other things, too. Did you know that hoping and waiting are connected in the ancient languages that the Bible was written in? In this two-week series, explore HOPE in a variety biblical texts, learn a little bit of Hebrew and Greek, and discuss how we experience those feelings in our lives today. The sessions will invite you into deep reflection on these big ideas in biblical faith and hopefully (*wink, wink*) deepen your experience of the Advent season this year.
At Luther Seminary, Marsh teaches a variety of courses in Biblical Hebrew, prophetic literature, gender, and food. She teaches regularly in congregations and enjoys inviting people of faith into a creative and challenging encounter with Scripture.
