The Bible conceives of young people as both developing and great in the Kingdom of God. In this course Dr. Sean McGever draws from his years of experience working with youth and explores the ministry in the hermeneutics of reading the bible with young people. The voice of the young person is taken seriously and engaged with as an unique perspective. McGever will show us how we can utilize these dynamics as we read the Bible both with them, rather than at them or to them, when we do Bible study. He goes over the grammar of interpretation, what it means to be young and how that influences how we read the Bible with young people, and what Biblical texts are great to discuss with young people.
