Preaching and Paul's Use of the OT - 3.00 Hours

NOTE: REGISTRATION FOR THIS COURSE IS OPEN FROM APRIL 1 - MAY 15 Preaching the epistles of Paul can be challenging in its own right. But sometimes preaching a passage from Paul involves also handling one, two, or even more passages from the OT that Paul quotes to make his argument. This course covers not only how we should understand Paul’s use of the OT, but especially the practicalities of preaching Pauline passages that deal heavily with the OT—without confusing our hearers in the process.

Doctrine of God & the Christian Life - 3.00 Hours

NOTE: REGISTRATION FOR THIS COURSE IS OPEN FROM APRIL 1 - MAY 15 The past two decades have witnessed a significant retrieval of historic Christian teaching about God in academic theology. This course aims to extend that retrieval to the church by providing advanced training to its leaders on the doctrine of God and God’s attributes. The focus of the course will be the relationship between the doctrine of God and the Christian life. There is a natural connection between these topics because God is not only the supreme being, the source and end of all things (Rom 11:36). God is also the supreme good of the human soul (Ps 16). We will attend to the entirety of Scripture’s teaching on these two topics, and also to several classic texts of the Christian tradition. We will focus especially, however, on how the Psalms address our two themes.
