Bible Interpretation: Acts through Revelations Class
Unity's "maieutic" and metaphysical approach to interpreting scriptures aims to help the interpreter cultivate self-knowledge and make contact with the Higher Spiritual Self commonly called "Christ within" and "Christ consciousness". Students discover inner spiritual meanings of Christian Scriptures (Acts through Revelations) as they continue to apply the Unity method of interprestation to the "New Testament".
