Foundational Courses

Old Testament Survey 103

Teacher:   Randy Cox

Textbook: The Bible

This one quarter course is designed to provide the participant with a basic understanding of the story of the Old Testament. We will achieve this understanding by studying the structure of the Old Testament and concentrating on major eras, significant events, and key figures in the Old Testament story. This will not be an in-depth study of the books of the Old Testament, but will look at each book and how it fits chronologically and theologically in the story of the Old Testament. As we progress in our study, we will look at the connections between the New and Old Testaments and the relevance of the Old Testament to our lives as Christians in this present age.

Bible 223: Isaiah

Teacher:  Brian Fourroux

Textbook:  The Bible

“The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah, kings of Judah.” This is how the largest book of the Prophets begins. Many people are intimidated by the size and scope of Isaiah, but in this two quarter course we will systematically walk through and discuss Isaiah’s vision, the prophet himself, and his historical context. As one of the most messianic prophetic books, we will see how Isaiah pointed God’s people to the messiah 700 years before and points them 2000 years after Jesus Christ, Immanuel, walked the earth. We will behold the majesty and glory of God as we explore Isaiah’s proclamation of God’s sovereignty, judgment, and salvation.

Bible 271: Jesus in the Hebrew Scriptures

Teacher:  Doug Thomas

Textbook: The Bible

Jesus said; “You search the Scriptures, because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness to me;” (John 5:39 Rsv.) Before the writing of the New Testament, the Hebrew Scriptures (our Old Testament) was the only Bible for Jesus and the disciples. This class will take us on a journey through the Bible to discover what the New Testament makes clear: The Hebrew Scriptures reveal the true nature of God and do indeed “bear witness” to Jesus as God Himself.  This class will strengthen our faith and give us a greater assurance of God’s faithfulness to us in giving us His Spirit breathed Word.

Building Courses

Bible 302: The Mission of Jesus Christ

Teacher:  Jim Moorhead

Textbook: The Bible

The incarnate Son of God came to this earth to fulfill a mission. In this class we are going to look at how Jesus went about fulfilling his mission. We will address questions such as, “What did Jesus see and what did he experience?” “What was his life like in first century Israel and what and why did he do the things he did?” We will concentrate on why Jesus taught what he did, rather than what he taught. We are also going to be looking at the interaction between the divine nature of Jesus Christ and the human nature of Jesus Christ and how they worked together. This is the first of a two-quarter class.

Bible 244 – Acts

Teacher:  Robert Smith

Textbook:  The Bible

“You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth” (Acts 1:8). Come and see how Jesus’ promise is fulfilled through the book of Acts as the gospel spreads throughout the world. And you may be surprised to discover that the means that God is using to make disciples of all nations is…you!
