Preaching Old Testament Narrative - 3.00 Hours

NOTE: Registration for this course will be open from November 1 – December 15 Preaching Old Testament narrative texts is often neglected by the church. The reasons for this neglect are complex and complicated. Part of the problem is the church’s difficulty in seeing the application of OT narrative texts that appear to be so strange and esoteric. In this course, we will focus on the means and methods of preaching OT narrative texts. OT historical narrative can be most challenging and difficult to interpret and to preach, but it can also provide wonderful, in-depth training and theology when appropriately understood.

Augustine and the City of God - 3.00 Hours

NOTE: Registration for this course will be open from November 1 – December 15 In this course we explore the life and theology of Augustine of Hippo, reflecting particularly on his City of God and the long, varied reception history of this work. We consider how it serves as a guide to engaging in apologetic discussion with non-Christians, whether in antiquity or in contemporary form. We also consider how it guides our public theology and engagement of a host of pastoral challenges. Through exploring this classic text, students grow in their confidence and competence to engage Augustine’s works on their own as a prompt and resource for pastoral theology and leadership today.

Exposition of Zechariah - 2.00 Hours

The Book of Zechariah is, on a proportional basis, the most referred to Old Testament book in the New Testament, yet it is rarely studied in the church. Zechariah contains diverse materials — apocalyptic visions, oracles of judgment, prescriptions — all of which depict the return of the glory of the Lord to his temple and his people through the predicted coming, suffering, and rejection of the Messianic king. The circumstances of Zechariah’s world mirror closely our own — a world where things are not right, God’s movement is not always visible, and hope is often in short supply. This course will provide a chapter-by-chapter study of Zechariah with a view toward its use and application in present day ministry.
