Making Christ Known
This course examines the gospel message of Jesus Christ and key elements of the Christian faith. Consideration will be given to how one should communicate his/her faith in light of the various backgrounds of other people. This course is not designed to teach a particular method of sharing one’s faith, but rather to identify the essential components of faith that should be shared, encouraging the student to develop the ability to share his/her faith in the context of everyday life. Students will be challenged to develop and utilize their own personal testimony to make Christ known to others.
Jewish History: Modern
Study the formation of the modern state of Israel, from the return of the Jewish people to the formation of nation, its wars and relationship to the Arab people.
Survey of Bible Doctrine II
This course is designed to explore the major doctrines of the Bible that are foundational for Christian living and study. The required reading and systematic biblical analysis will include important areas of theology including man, sin, salvation, the church, and the future. The course will provide a general, yet careful survey of these doctrines and their impact on what we believe and how we respond in our daily lives.
Biblical Interpretation Makes a Difference
This course is designed to help the student learn how to understand the Bible from God’s perspective. Key to the process is what literal interpretation and the progress of revelation mean for reading and interpreting the Bible correctly. In addition, issues such as context, figures of speech, symbols, genre, and the specific area of prophecy will be dealt with relative to literal interpretation. The course will provide a framework for Bible study and interpretation which is often called Dispensationalism.
