Albuquerque Community Bible Class is designed to cover the great themes of the Bible. In addition, a good dose of archaeology will be included whenever archaeology/Near East history helps understanding the biblical Text. In fact, the first six class sessions feature an orientation to archaeology, as it relates to the Bible. The reason for this emphasis is because the teacher of the Albuquerque Community Bible Class has a long history in field archaeology, has academic training in archaeology, and he believes that archaeology provides an often underused window into understanding biblical customs and beliefs. As you can see in the topics below, the biblical themes are collected in six-class groups. The classes listed represent the class schedule for about the next year
