B115A -Biblical Studies III: The Gospels and Revelation
Biblical Studies III surveys the content and issues in interpretation of the canonical gospels, and the book of Revelation. It is a course in which students explore the historical origins and sources of these writings, as well as engage them via various contemporary interpretive approaches. In conjunction with Biblical Studies I, II, and IV the course seeks to hone the interpretive skills of students, both with a depth of appreciation for the contexts and content of the Biblical writings, and an understanding of how to most appropriately and faithfully interpret the Biblical writings for the practice of ministry in their own contexts of the Church today.
