HPU offering Free Online Bible Seminar
Howard Payne University
Howard Payne University will host a free Zoom seminar, “In the Beginning and Beyond: A Study of Genesis 1-4,” on six Wednesdays in May and June. Leading the study will be Dr. Donnie Auvenshine, HPU’s vice president for academic affairs and professor of Christian studies.
The meetings will take place from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on May 19 and 26 and June 2, 9, 23 and 30, hosted live through Zoom video conferencing. The seminar is free of charge and open to the public, but registration is required.
To register for the event, please visit www.hputx.edu/genesis, where a link is available to a webpage with a brief registration form. Once registered, an invitation to each of the six sessions will be sent by e-mail.
Each session will be video-recorded and, following each meeting, a link to the recording will be sent to all participants. Though no academic credit will be granted for the seminar, the series will provide an in-depth study and serve as a helpful resource for continued study of these foundational chapters of the Bible, which explore the creation of the heavens and the earth followed by the experiences of Adam and Eve and their sons Cain, Abel and Seth.
“I have long been fascinated by the richness of the Old Testament, and I look forward to this study,” said Dr. Auvenshine. “There’s so much for us to discover in just these four chapters.”
The university encourages all who are interested to take part in the seminar.
“HPU is happy to host this series and make it widely available,” said Dr. Cory Hines, president. “Dr. Auvenshine is one of HPU’s most distinguished scholars, and I appreciate his leadership in what will be an informative, engaging study.”
