CHM500E

God's Shalom and the Church's Witness

This course begins with an examination of the biblical concept of shalom as seen in creation, covenant, prophetic vision and renewal; the ministry, witness and teaching of Jesus; and the life of the early church. The course then examines how the church’s changing social location has influenced the way it has sought to bear witness to God’s intended shalom at various times in history. The past is queried with an aim toward strengthening contemporary discernment of the “things that make for peace” and how the church may more faithfully bear witness to God’s shalom in our moment in time.

BIB502E

Beginning Greek

In this first-level Greek course, students learn the basics of the Greek language and read parts of 1 John, an early Christian letter about the fundamental human desire to know and love God. This basic skill-building course for the New Testament exegesis sequence is also helpful to any student who wishes to have a clearer understanding of the biblical text and how it functions in the life of the church. Imagine! You can read Greek!
