Spring Quarter 2019

9 am Classes

Judeo-Christian Mythologies
Nick Carter
Room 254

A myth is an account of events that is told and retold to shape a culture’s values, purpose, and sense of identity—what we collectively call a worldview. We are going to look at Genesis 1-11 to unpack the “mythology” that God gave to his people Israel, and how it still speaks to us today.

Deuteronomy and the Early Church, Part 2
Chet Wood
Room 254

We’ll explore how the early church and the Apostle Paul used the text of Deuteronomy for material in the early theological development of the person and work of Christ, for understanding the future of Israel, and for the ethical guidance the Law provided to the early church. This is the second part of this two-part class.

A Journey Through Lent
Julie Foster
Room 252

Using a sermon study in the Psalms by Pastor Tim Keller, we’ll explore the ancient Christian tradition of Lent and its anticipation of the victory of the light and life of Christ over the darkness of sin and death. The first half of this class will take place in Lent, so we’ll discuss the spiritual practices that bring out the season’s significance. In the second half of the class we’ll focus on what we learned from the season. Participants can use an optional 40-day devotional if they want to focus more deeply during the Lenten season.

Living Today
Jack Rogers, Stafford Walker
Room 256

What is the difference between salvation and rewards? To what extend does our work on this earth affect our rewards in heaven? This quarter we’ll explore theme of “reward” in Scripture, looking at what our rewards are, what they mean, how they are obtained, and how judgment plays into it.

2nd Samuel
John King
Room 152

Saul, David, the armies arrayed against Israel…just some of the personalities in stories of betrayal, jealousy, murder, tragedy, and war, stories told in 2nd Samuel. This quarter we’ll focus on the ascension of King David, his battles against foreign enemies, the seduction of Bathsheba and betrayal of Uriah, and the subsequent chaos in David’s family. Discover some of the themes 2nd Samuel develops: sin, repentance, and God’s covenantal love.
