Developing a Hebrew-Biblical worldview, fresh skills in personal Bible study, and enjoying the inspired ‘woven’ nature of the literature – that is what this second CICC Cafe series on Biblefresh Insights is all about.
This page holds the papers used in the CICC Cafe series.
Recognising that ‘the letter kills’ but believing that ‘the Spirit gives life’ (2 Cor 3.6), the Cafe opened up a new window onto the spiritual, prophetic voice woven into the scriptures.
The Cafe series began with five weeks looking at the text of Genesis 1, looking at the detailed analysis of the literal text, and the revelation within the ‘woven’ structure.
We then spent a week practicing the skill of text analysis, but in the Gospels text from Mark 4 on the Parable of The Sower. The literal text and the analysed text is given below, to show how we set it out.
