Judaism in the Time of Jesus - 2.00 Hours

Jesus was a Jew. Paul was a Jew. Peter was a Jew. Judaism, its culture, politics, and religion, shape the background of the New Testament. Many of the controversies and conversations we encounter in the New Testament concern the way Jesus and His apostles confront the Judaism of their time. This class will provide you with an in-depth introduction to this vital background to the New Testament. Students will come away with a grasp of the religio-cultural setting in which the New Testament texts were written, which will provide a window into the past by not only looking at the history of Judaism in the time of Jesus, but also examining the way this history shapes our understanding and impact of the New Testament. By reading important primary and secondary texts we will dive into topics ranging from politics, religion, purity, sectarianism, identity and others. The ultimate goal will be to apply these insights to topics in biblical studies and systematic theology.

The Role of Religion in Int'l Affairs - 1.00 Hours

The fundamental religious nature of human beings means that religion will be a perpetual factor in world affairs. Yet this has often been ignored or theorized away in policymaking. How can a Christian perspective on human nature and the role of faith in the lives of individuals and communities inform the fields of national security and international relations? How might this outlook shape the callings of individual Christians, whether as citizen or specialist? What are the religious trends and dynamics that influence international politics and security today?
