You’ve landed on the Rethinking Rest website. I’m Gregory Hall the host of the Rethinking Scripture Podcast and its related website RethinkingScripture.com.

Rethinking Rest is the first “Rethinking Scripture Project” I’ve completed. Biblical rest is so much more than a one-day-a-week ritual. I’ll even venture to say… it’s not at all what you think it is. Rest a fully-developed theology that begins in Genesis chapter one and isn’t completed until the end of Revelation. 

This site includes a seven-week class on biblical rest. The class includes video teaching, Bible lessons to be used in conjunction with the teaching, a sermon on rest, a few blog posts also on topic, and rumors of a forthcoming book (est. release 2022). 

I invite you to venture into the pages of Scripture with me. We will discover how your “place to be” and “thing to do” is the key to Christ’s offer of rest.
