May – June 2022 – Rightly Handling the Word: Introduction to Bible Interpretation

This module has two learning objectives. First, it provides an overview of the task of Bible interpretation, outlining key concepts and principles which can help us interpret the Bible more responsibly. This includes topics such as Bible translations, exegesis and hermeneutics, types of biblical genre, as well as questions on grammar and historical context. Second, live online classes offer opportunities to apply these principles of interpretation on select Bible texts. Practising these principles will help you improve your ability to interpret and understand Scripture.

In addition to the Bible, participants will rely on three main resources. One is the popular guide by Gordon Fee & Douglas Stuart, How to Read the Bible for All Its Worth (4th edition 2018). For practical application, we’ll use a recent book by Benny Tabalujan et al, Renewal Through Restoration: An Uncommon Call to Christian Discipleship (2021).

 

Every participant must purchase their own copy of these two books and undertake pre-reading prior to commencement of the course. (Purchase Renewal Through Restoration direct from Klesis and enjoy a generous discount!) These materials will be supplemented with engaging videos presented by Keith Stanglin from the Center for Christian Studies (Austin, Texas).

Oct – Nov 2022 – The Drama of Scripture

This course has two objectives. First, it helps learners to understand God’s message as communicated through Scripture as one unified story that moves purposefully from a beginning to an end. Like a jigsaw puzzle, seeing the big picture of the Bible helps us to identify and locate the smaller pieces so they fit properly in their relation to the whole.

 

Second, course participants will learn that God’s story becomes “our story” as we join with God to accomplish his redemptive purposes towards all creation. This helps us to comprehend and communicate to others a truly biblical view of the world, the church, and our lives.

 

The textbook for this course is the book by Craig G. Bartholomew and Michael W. Goheen, The True Story of the World: Finding Your Place in the Biblical Drama (Baker/Faith Alive, 2009). Every participant must purchase their own copy of this text and undertake pre-reading prior to commencement of the course.
