During discussion of Romans 5 and the contrast between the First Adam and the Second Adam, one of the members was blown away at the “design” of our salvation. It’s typology, and she was impressed. The discussion continued and I thought of the perfect analogy of God’s “Deep Magic” as C.S. Lewis would call it: the fractal zoom. Here’s what I am talking about (the video goes on for 9 minutes, but you need to watch at least 3-4 minutes to appreciate what is happening):
I mentioned this and received blank stares. Fair enough. But I wanted desperately to show the class a portion of this. Kind of impossible to do with a chalk board. And I couldn’t explain it in words because I don’t understand it well enough.
What to do? I suggested going “hi tech” and using the computer and the projector, another suggested using Power Point.
While making slides doesn’t appeal to me, and pre-made pp slides can’t anticipate the awesome questions and discussion we receive every week, I am beginning to think that using some more interactive media–besides the simple handouts I prepare now–is the way to go.
I’m exploring it. Anyone have any ideas on how to incorporate tech in Bible Study? Any suggestions on what you’d like to see?
