Event Description

The Bethel community and its friends are invited to the Bethel History Center's fall event:

A Look at the NIV Bible
9:15-10 a.m. | Refreshments | $3 
10-11 a.m. | Program | Free 

Many of us use the New International Version (NIV) regularly. We own one (or more). Our churches may use them as pew Bibles. Our classes often consult the notes and helps in the NIV Study Bible. It is widely read among English-speaking people, not only in the United States, but around the world.

We are privileged to have Dr. Jeannine Brown with us to share how the NIV came to be and how Bethel has had a special relationship to it over the years. We will learn about the variety of versions that are available and may even learn what the "r" stands for in the NIrV! Jeannine is Professor of New Testament at Bethel Seminary in San Diego and St. Paul. For more than 20 years, she has taught courses in New Testament, hermeneutics, Greek, and other related areas. She is a prolific writer of books and articles and also serves on the Committee on Bible Translation for the NIV and on a team revising the NIrV.

This is also a special opportunity to be in the original Bethel Seminary complex while it is still set up as a seminary. Later this year, the seminary will move to Anderson Center to be near the other graduate-level programs already there.

Please join us for this special event! Register here or call Dwaine Lind at 763.755.2188.

An offering will be received to further the important work of the Friends of the History Center.
