Acts: Crucifixion, Resurrection and Proclamation

After His resurrection and ascension, His disciples spread His Church across the Roman Empire and changed the world. Acts: Crucifixion, Resurrection and Proclamation will add depth to the student’s understanding and appreciation of these world-changing and individual life-changing events.
Romans-Ephesians: The Letter to the Roman Church and Letters From a Roman Prison
Rome was the capital of the world. Although Paul hadn’t yet visited there when he wrote his epistle to the Christians at Rome, he wanted to make certain they were clear on what the Gospel really was. In the Roman epistle, we have Paul’s great theological statement on God’s salvation. Later, Paul was imprisoned in Rome while waiting for his trial before Caesar. While there, he wrote four letters. In this course, Romans-Ephesians: The Letter to the Roman Church and Letters from a Roman Prison, we study the letters Paul wrote both to and from Rome.
Galatians-1 Corinthians: Paul’s Earliest Letters
The New Testament epistles to the Galatians and Thessalonians are Paul’s earliest preserved letters. In them, he began to lay a theological and behavioral foundation for Christian belief and conduct. This course, Galatians – 1 Corinthians: Paul’s Earliest Letters, surveys these early writings.
1 & 2 Corinthians: Two Letters to a Tough Church
The Corinthian church was planted in a moral cesspool. The people who came to Christ and formed that church brought a wagon-load of philosophical, religious, and moral baggage with them that made this a tough church. The two letters we have from Paul to the Corinthians deal with some of the most thorny spiritual and moral issues addressed anywhere in the Bible. This course, 1 & 2 Corinthians: Two Letters to a Tough Church, contains essential help for the Church in any age.
1 Timothy-Hebrews: Letters to Pastors and to a Church Struggling to Believe
This course, 1 Timothy-Hebrews: Letters to Pastors and a Church Struggling to Believe, combines three letters of instruction to young pastors and a letter to a church struggling with its foundational beliefs. The Pastoral Epistles provide doctrinal and tactical help to those who lead God’s people; and Hebrews presents Jesus Christ as the sovereign Savior and Lord of His church and encourages its readers to pursue unreservedly their relationship with Him.
James-Jude: Letters to Everyone – General and Johannine Epistels
Unlike Paul’s epistles, the general epistles were not addressed to a particular city or person. These letters deal more with the broader topics of suffering and the dangers of false teachings and unbelief among Christians. This course, James-Jude: Letters to Everyone – General and Johannine Epistles, covers these epistles.
Revelation: The Book of Revelation – The End and the Beginning
In Revelation: The Book of Revelation – The End and the Beginning, the New Testament and the Bible culminate with this glorious description of the Revelation of Jesus Christ.
