Early Hymns to Yeshua the Messiah
Early Hymns to Yeshua the Messiah 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: June 13 & 20.
"Speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord" (Eph 5:19).
Yes, we're talking about first century Messianic hymns! We will begin with a little history of the word 'hymn' in Hebrew and Greek―and you'll be surprised what we learn from that already! We will continue with an introduction to the work of the 'father' of modern Jewish musicology, Abraham Idelsohn. We will then dive deeply into the wondrous hymnic passages like Phil 2:6–11.
June 13 & 20
