Mr. Chaplin will share more about his work with and development of Amy Foundation,
established in memory of Amy Biehl, a Stanford graduate and Fulbright Scholar killed in 1993
in an act of political mob violence outside of Cape Town, South Africa. The foundation staff models values,

Sundays, May 28, June 4 and June 11 – Dr. Daniel Smith-Christopher returns with a 3-week class on
The Outlaw David Ben Jesse: New Approaches to the Story of David.
Did “Robin Hood” Write the Psalms?
This course will begin with an overview of the Psalms – how to read Biblical Poetry, some of the recent work done on the Book of Psalms, etc. The second session, in addition to Psalms, will include a survey of the Kings of Ancient Israel, and especially King David – as he is normally presented in Christian Bible study lessons. The third session will be David as you’ve never heard of him!! We will start by examining Psalms that mention the life of David, and then proceed to explore the chapters about David ‘the outlaw’ in 1 Samuel.
