“Have You Heard the One About Two Prophets, a Lion and a Donkey…?”

Let’s face it: the Bible contains some pretty weird stories.

But where do we begin in making sense of them? Sometimes we are left wondering whether we have really heard what certain passages have to say…

Come and hear Paul Jones, Trinity’s Lecturer in Old Testament and Preaching, as he walks us through one of the strangest stories in the Old Testament — 1 Kings 13. Paul will guide us step-by-step through a process of reading and interpreting difficult texts, using the unusual tale in 1 Kings 13 as a case study.

Speaker: Paul Hedley Jones

Paul Jones wrote his PhD dissertation at Durham University on this very passage of Scripture. He has authored two books, one on the prophets and one on Job, both of which endeavour to guide Bible readers through tricky texts toward meaningful interpretations.
