You are invited to join us for Bible Study during Lent with Rev. Tom Kort leading. We will be studying the “Psalms of Ascent.” They are also called Pilgrim Songs.
There are 15 Psalms (120 – 134) that each begin with the title “A Song of Ascent.” Jerusalem is situated on a high hill. These Psalms were sung by Hebrew worshippers on their way up to Jerusalem to attend one of the three main annual Jewish festivals. According to some traditions, the Jewish priests also sang some of these Songs of Ascent as they walked up the steps to the temple in Jerusalem. Jesus and his disciples would have sung these psalms on their way to Jerusalem to celebrate Passover.
The 15 Psalms will be divided between the sermons and the Adult Bible Studies. The Bible Study classes will be on Sundays at 11:00am and Tuesdays at 4:00pm.
