Bear with me, non-churchy types; I think this is interesting for anyone who is fascinated by Ancient History...
I was looking for the next project or theme or whatever for my very casual church homegroup (we meet on zoom to chat, and talk about whatever we were supposed to have looked at during the week but forgot or didn't get round to). The constraints are;
It must be freely available, as I don't want us all to have to buy some book or course,
It must not be prescriptive as in, 'read this and then answer these questions'
I need to be able to quickly and easily print off something to send to one member who is not on the internet, and joins the group at a friend's house
I need to like it and find it interesting and thought provoking
It needs to be amusing (sorry, I have a mostly, but not always lighthearted and frivolous approach to things)
and so we are sorted. The videos are only a few minutes long, so it is easy to watch them during the zoom, and I can easily copy and paste and post the extra information.
What is really interesting is seeing the places, so different to here in England, where the events of the Old and New Testament took place, and hearing Andrew Ollerton's quirky take on them.
And yes, I did buy his book 'The Bible', after doing a 'look inside' on Amazon.
Anyone who can write this gets my attention
