Bible Interpretations

Course Instructor: Dr. Michael Krause

How to read the Bible for all its worth? Even though most of the Bible was written more than 2000 years ago to people who had different languages and cultures than we do, it still speaks to us today. This process of discovering what the text is really saying in its original context is called exegesis. Interpreting what that text means to us is called hermeneutics. This course is designed to help students read and study the Bible with greater understanding by teaching them the basics of good interpretation for the various types of literature (genres) that make up the Bible. Once we have understood the text and discerned its meaning, we also need to communicate it to others. This course will also incorporate exercises that outline the text to help find the main idea of passage so that it can be taught and preached more effectively – which is Homiletics. Please remember that any time we interpret Scripture we are interpreting language and grammar and sentence structure. This course will require a good basic understanding of the English language. The course is based on the book How to Read the Bible for All Its Worth (by Gordon Fee and Douglas Stuart).

The Book of Acts

Course Instructor: Dr. Bob Morris

This course examines the foundation and development of the Early Church that initiated a great missionary movement, in addition to biblical themes such as redemption, prayer, proclamation, and “all nations”.  We will develop a biblical theology of mission that builds on the historical development of the Church in the book of Acts as we discover how the early church penetrated pagan culture and grew rapidly in a hostile world. This theology of mission will also serve as a lens for considering current approaches and challenges in cross-cultural ministry.
