‘Tobias and the Angel’ (Wednesday Evening Discussion Group) 7pm in the Clergy Vestry (beginning on 24 October): a chance to look at the Book of Tobit. This is included in Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Bibles as part of the Old Testament, while Anglicans regard it as part of the Apocrypha, meant to be read ‘for an example of life and manners’. It tells the story of Tobias, the healing angel Raphael, and the beautiful Sarah. It was long thought to have been written in Greek, but fragments of the Hebrew original (probably dating from the second century BC) were found in the Dead Sea Scrolls. We shall be reading and discussing this fascinating book in preparation for our Angel Festival.
