Bible Study

Book of Tobit

Fridays during Trinity Term
Location: Old Library / Hybrid with Zoom link
12.45pm - 1.30pm

This term, we will be studying the Book of Tobit, which is found in the Septuagint, the Greek translation of the Old Testament. According to the 39 Articles of Religion, Tobit belongs to the Apocrypha, which we read ‘for example of life and instruction of manners’. Tobit is a beautiful story, full of humour and adventure. It is a work of fiction, which has inspired countless representations in art and literature. Each week, we will study the text with reference to a particular artistic or literary artefact. We will explore  the theological insights offered by Tobit, as well as its cultural legacy.
