This class provides further background to the Bible, exploring its authority through general and special revelation and its reliability and extensive formation (surveying manuscripts and transmission). It will also introduce tools for deeper analysis of the text through inductive process, word studies, and grammatical charting. We recommend taking: How to Read your Bible I to glean the basic interpretive process before starting this course.

About This Class
The Gospel of John commonly is considered the most theologically complex document in the Bible.  John's contribution to Christian theology is incalculable.  The course, initially, will focus on various appraisals of John's Gospel both ancient and modern; second, on an overview of the theology of John's Gospel (particularly in the areas of Christology, pneumatology and discipleship); and finally, upon a thorough investigation of the text itself (through both intensive study of the text itself and by supplementary readings from secondary sources).

About This Class
"God wants me to try harder." "God blesses me when I'm good and punishes me when I'm bad." "God is angry with me." We all have ideas that we tell ourselves about God and how he works in our lives. Some are true--but many are false. Smith believes those thoughts determine not only who we are, but how we live. This deep, loving and transformative book will help you discover the narratives that Jesus lived by--to know the Lord he knew and the kingdom he proclaimed--and to practice spiritual exercises that will help you grow in the knowledge of our good and beautiful God.

About This Class
An angry prophet. A feared and loathsome enemy. A devastating storm. And the surprising message of a merciful God to his people. Pastor Timothy Keller reveals the hidden depths within the book of Jonah. Keller makes the case that Jonah was one of the worst prophets in the entire Bible. And yet there are unmistakably clear connections between Jonah, the prodigal son, and Jesus. Jesus in fact saw himself in Jonah. How could one of the most defiant and disobedient prophets in the Bible be compared to Jesus?
