How Scripture Was Read

Speaker: Phil Brookman

Bible Passage: Philemon

Based on the work of William Shiell, this lesson aimed to help us understand what it was like for the small house churches to gather together for a reading of one of Paul’s letters. The ancient world carried with it a certain culture of anticipation and engagement that, for the most part, has been lost today. Phil used the letter of Philemon to explain how scripture would have come to life in the hearts of the first listeners.
