2014 SPRING COURSES/SEMINARS
 
JESUS CHRIST IN ALL THE SCRIPTURES
Instructors: David E. Hull, M.Div.
The Bible is all about Jesus, from the Book of Genesis to the Book of Revelation. Jesus repeatedly taught about how He was revealed throughout the Old Testament. As indicated in the Book of Hebrews, God reveals Himself in many portions, in many ways, and ultimately, in His Son. This course is the second of a two-semester course on Christ-centered Bible study. In this course, we will examine principles of interpretation, prophecies, types, shadows, Christophanies, symbols, themes, and more. The Old Testament, from l Samuel to Malachi, will be the main area of this semester's study. We will also examine how the Old Testament is viewed in the New Testament. Students will be shown how Christ is revealed throughout the Bible and how to mine the Christ-centered treasures in Scripture for themselves. Pre-requisite: Jesus Christ in All the Scriptures 409-A

ADDRESSING SAME-GENDER SEXUAL ATTRACTION FROM THE CHRISTIAN PERSPECTIVE
Instructor: Pamela Ousley, Author

Same-sex attraction is a hot-button issue which is tearing at the very fabric of our society. This class, taught by a Christian woman who has walked into, through, and out of lesbian-identification, realistically speaks to this too-often misunderstood issue. Christians are frustrated and confused about how to lovingly address same-sex attraction in their families, schools, workplaces, counseling settings, and churches. This class is for all those who wish to understand and/or assist individuals who identify as homosexual or lesbian, utilizing an exclusively Christian perspective in their interactions.

PAUL'S LETTER TO THE ROMANS
Instructor: Margaret Swinger, M.A.
Romans is considered by some to be the greatest exposition of Christian doctrine in Scripture. It is filled with great themes of redemption, the guilt of humankind, and one's inability to earn favor with God, the redeeming death of Christ, and the free gift of salvation to be received by faith. The overall theme demonstrates God's righteousness. By His grace and power we are enabled to live a pattern of life consistent with God's own nature.

THE LAW: EXODUS TO DEUTERONOMY

Although we are not under the Law (Romans 6:14), these four books contain material that is still valuable and relevant for us today. They present not only law, but exciting history as well, including some of the most momentous events in history. Furthermore, they reveal much about Jesus Christ. He will be at the core of our study.

NEW TESTAMENT GREEK 1-B
Instructor: David Hull, M.Div.
The New Testament of the Holy Bible was written in Greek. New Testament Greek is not the same as Classical, Byzantine, or Modern Greek. A sound understanding of this exquisite language provides one with the best and most direct access to the New Testament writings and to a better understanding of them. This course is the second half of first-year New Testament Greek. It will cover basic concepts, forms, functions, tools, and approaches useful in learning the language. The most common vocabulary words will be clearly identified and presented. Students will be guided through a reading in class of the Gospel and letters of John in Greek. The large verbal system, including participles and infinitives, will be covered in this semester. All the other parts of speech will have been introduced in distinct blocks in the first semester. Prerequisite: Greek 1-A or equivalent.

BUILDING WORLDVIEW BRIDGES FOR EVANGELISM (Seminar)
Instructor: Freddie Davis, D.Min
In the past, we could do evangelism in America with the assumption that people understood the Biblical concept of God. Not so anymore. While the gospel never changes, our methods must. This seminar will be a hands-on training which not only explains why an understanding of worldview is important for evangelism in our current pluralistic environment, but also specifically how to share Christ with people who come from each worldview category.

JEREMIAH: THE BOOK OF GOD'S LOVE AND JUDGMENT
Instructor:
David Fritz, M.A.
The prophets of God did not lead easy lives. Most were persecuted, ridiculed, and ignored until it was too late. Jeremiah, "the weeping prophet," ministered to the apostate divided kingdom of Judah and the capital city of Jerusalem before the Babylonian captivity. Jeremiah's words of care, concern, and judgment are a model for people today. Join us as we study one of the Bible's longest and most interesting books of God's love and judgment toward a nation.

THE BOOK OF LUKE IN A NUTSHELL (Seminar)
Instructor: Kay Campbell-Williams, M.A., M.S., M.P.A.
Luke, often believed to be a Gentile physician, wrote this well-documented, historically accurate coverage of the life of Jesus Christ. He was not an eyewitness to Jesus' life, but he used eye-witness testimonies when compiling this Gospel. This man of science and of faith introduces the Son of Man from birth to His death and resurrection. Come and learn why this Gospel was the one selected as the basis for the highly and continuingly successful "Jesus Film Project" ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ (now named CRU) that is presented internationally to many nations.

BEYOND LOSS: LIVING IN JOY AGAIN (Seminar)
Instructor: Jean Williams, Ph.D.
You lost someone you loved either to death or divorce. You defined yourself by the career or family role that you had to give up. Someone helped you to survive the initial shock. However, you are still "stuck", not knowing who you are now or how to live joyfully. If you identify with these situations, this seminar will provide you with tools to find a way forward, living in God's joy and with His divine guidance. Jesus offers you deliverance from your confusion and wandering; your lack of focus and direction. We will work on the premise of Romans 8:28 that all things work together for good for those who love God and are called according to His purpose. He still has an uplifting and rewarding purpose for your life. In this seminar, you will take a look within yourself and then use Scripture, prayer, and other tools to explore ways of finding out where our Lord may be leading you.

THE CAREGIVER: INTRODUCTION TO THE GIFT AND ART OF BEING A HEALING PRESENCE (Seminar)
Instructor: Ray Wann, M.A., CPE-1
Discover how you can make a difference in the lives of others by being present in a way that is healing, nurturing, and potentially transforming. The caregiver can be a healing presence to those in their care and do much more than support their healing. You normalize the journey they are on and the feelings they experience. You affirm who they are and who they are becoming. You embody compassion. You instill hope, and your healing presence benefits you and your life as well as the lives of those in your care. Whether you are a professional caregiver, volunteer, family member, or friend, this seminar will provide you with many valuable thoughts concerning healing presence.

THE CHURCH AS COMMUNITY IN THE LETTERS OF PETER, PAUL AND JAMES
Instructor: Harry Horne, D.Min., Th.D.
The writers of the epistles want the church to be "a colony of heaven on earth". In the laws of Exodus, Leviticus, and Deuteronomy, God revealed the ways ancient Israel was to live together in human community. This course will examine a selection of those laws and the ways Peter, Paul, and James found principles in them for the formation of church communities in the urban context of the first century. As we examine the ways the epistle writers apply the principles behind the Old Testament laws for their time and place, we will think together about how they inform our desire for the church today to be the kind of communities God wants us to be.

DISCOVER THE REAL MIRACLE OF FORGIVENESS (Seminar)
Instructor: Travis Vining, Author
Is it possible to make sense of what we perceive as tragic and unforgivable events in our lives? What could murder, pain, suffering and insanity possibly have to do with peace, freedom and a loving God? The answers to these questions may surprise you. The instructor's personal experience, as the son of a serial killer, is unique and powerful. His methods are applicable to every participant. This Biblical process leads to new freedom from guilt, anger and fear, leads to healing, and offers a relationship with Jesus Christ that is beyond all understanding. The miracle of forgiveness allows us to have a relationship with our creator that includes intimate knowledge of His love for us, and an understanding of His will for our lives.

Mark Geppert, President/Founder, S.E. Asia Prayer Center
Learn from Biblical characters who ran away from unresolved issues rather than face the external pressure God sent to manifest their need for greater grace.

HEAVEN SEES A NEW CREATION
Instructor: Dena Oetjen Woodburn
We no longer can think of ourselves from a world view and our history of mistakes, disappointments and what the world says of us, but now know what God says of our whole person and what we truly are in heaven's eyes: lavishly loved, clothed in righteousness with power from on high, seated in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, given authority to overcome the works of the devil, equipped with everything we need for life and godliness. Learning to walk, speak, act - be children of God, transformed to be like our Brother Jesus. Transformed by renewing our minds so that we understand the pleasure of God's will, "For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." Are you longing to be that joy filled, empowered person each one of us is in heaven's eyes?

IN DEFENSE OF JESUS' RESURRECTION (Seminar)
Instructor: Mark Mahoney, M.Div.
This seminar unpacks briefly the arguments against the historicity of Jesus' Resurrection or whether it even occurred. It will focus on the considerable evidence that strongly supports Jesus' resurrection as well as the historicity of the event itself. We will clearly see that Jesus' resurrection is the only theory that best explains his post-death appearances looking at both Biblical as well as extra-biblical texts. Lastly, this seminar teaches how to articulate this argument to a lost world. This relies heavily on the works of Gary R. Habermas, Michael R. Licona, William Lane Craig, and Norman Geisler and the debate between Gerd Ludemann and William Lane Craig on the subject.

2014 SUMMER COURSES AND SEMINARS

BIBLE GEOGRAPHY
Instructor: David Hull, M.Div.
The events of the Bible occurred in a unique and fascinating area of the world. How often do we come across the names of cities, rivers, mountains, and other places in the Bible without stopping to learn their location, meaning, or pronunciation? It is all too easy to think that we are not missing important information, or that it would take too much time and effort to find out about sites in Scripture. An understanding of Bible geography is vital to understanding the rest of the Bible. Learning about the features and terrain of the Bible lands can be a surprisingly enjoyable and exciting adventure! In this short course we will use a variety of media to become more familiar with Bible places, their characteristics, and their implications for understanding Scripture. Students will also learn about available resources that can make their own personal study easier and more rewarding. We will begin with a general overview, continue with a look at major locations, and conclude with a focus on the key city of Jerusalem.

LIFE COACHING FUNDAMENTALS
Instructor: Joe Amanfu, Ph.D.
Coaching is a process that helps individuals to produce extraordinary results in life, career, business, or organization. Through the process of coaching you will deepen your learning, improve your performance, and enhance the quality of your life. Specifically, a coach works with you to: 1) discover, clarify, and align with what you want to achieve; 2) encourage your own self-discovery - recognize that you are fearfully and wonderfully made by God (Psalm 139:14) and that God has deposited tremendous potential in you for success and a purposeful life; 3) generate your own solutions and strategies, based on the Word of God; 4) hold yourself responsible and accountable. Coaching is becoming very popular because better results matter. We've long understood the need for an athletic coach, a music teacher, or a personal trainer. Coaching enables you or your organization to have those same benefits to reach new levels of success. And who doesn't want more success?

BIBLE GENEALOGY AND CHRONOLOGY
Instructor: David Hull, M.Div.
Imagine that someone discovered ancient tablets by an unknown person that gave us a genealogical and chronological record that goes back to the very beginnings of humanity. The world would hail that as one of the greatest archaeological finds ever. We already have that and much more in God's inspired Word. In fact, of the resources available around the world, only the Bible contains a chronology of events prior to a few hundred years B.C. Genealogy and chronology are inseparably linked in Scripture and are very worthwhile areas of Bible study. These two subjects provide a skeleton for the body of Scripture and serve the very special purpose of following the steadfast course from Adam to the ultimate destination, the Person of Jesus Christ. Students in this course will learn key concepts and gain intriguing insights to this area of study, diminishing the challenge that is sometimes presented when studying genealogy and chronology.

CHRIST AND CREATION (Seminar)
Instructor: David Hull, M.Div.
God presents written revelation through His Word and general revelation through His work. Both come together in the creation week. The first chapter of Genesis provides the home page for the website of Scripture. Creation week provides outlines relating to the Tabernacle, the Jewish calendar, and more. Creation introduces us to God, His nature, and His approach to communicating with us. See how Christ is revealed in creation and how various aspects of creation are used to convey spiritual truth throughout Scripture. Follow threads, themes, and outlines originating in Genesis. Learn about types, shadows, and symbols from creation, while viewing the Old Testament as Christ and His messengers did.
