Blessing in the Bible & Tradition


Blessing in the Bible & Tradition is an ONGROUND ONLY mini course held at the Messianic Studies Institute (4950 Morse Road, Columbus, Ohio 43230) from 7:00–9:30pm TWO WEDNESDAYS: Jan 17 & 24.

Course Description:

The word ‘blessing’ is one of the most often used words in religious speech, yet one of the most difficult to define. Is it a prayer? Is the meaning the same in both the Tanakh (OT) & New Covenant Scriptures (NT)? When we say “God bless you!” what are we really saying? We will trace the meaning of ‘blessing’ throughout the Bible and related tradition.
