Course Information

Do you want to better know how to read and understand your Bible? Examining both history and theology, we will explore how the New Testament writers engaged Israel’s story in light of the Christ event. Discover how understanding their process of writing these New Testament texts affects how we interact with the biblical texts today as Christians. Join this journey and gain insight into your Bible today!

How Courses Work

All of our courses are offered via online live attendance (using free webinar software, for which we provide a link). Each course is six weeks long, meeting online once a week on the same day at the same time. The weekly sessions run 90 minutes: 45 minutes for presentation and 45 minutes for Q&R. A maximum of 15 students will be randomly selected to participate in the Q&R sessions (system-generated). If a student misses a course session, the talk/lecture will still be available online for 60 days, but the live chat room interaction will not be available.

Live Class Dates

The course begins May 9, 2017 and runs weekly at 7PM EST. The live class dates are as follows:
  • May 9 – Session 1
  • May 16 – Session 2
  • May 23 – Session 3
  • May 30 – Session 4
  • Jun 6 – Session 5
  • Jun 13 – Session 6

Full course details, including session titles and attachments, are available upon registration.
