Syllabus - Registration opens April 1


An examination of covenant theology from exegetical and historical perspectives.

Emphasis is placed on the role of the biblical doctrine of the covenants in preaching and pastoral ministry.

Preaching the Book of Hebrews
Dr. Michael Allen
02DM880 -
Syllabus - Registration opens April 1


Hebrews remains relatively unfamiliar to many modern Christians and remarkably understudied in the modern Reformed tradition, yet it should play a decisive role in helping us know Christ and follow him in faith through difficult times. In this class we consider the style, structure, and scriptural argument of this remarkable text and focus on how it contributes uniquely to contemporary pastoral theology and preaching. Our efforts to understand and expound the text more effectively will be especially benefitted by studying it alongside the most perceptive readers of the classical and Reformed tradition.
