Course
Descriptions

We all want to know who we are, what our purpose is, and the real meaning of life. We can find this good news and much more in the amazing Book of Romans, Paul’s greatest work. While the four gospels present the words and works of Jesus Christ, Romans explores the significance of His sacrificial death. Using a question-and-answer format, Paul records the most systematic presentation of theology in the Bible. Yet, Romans is more than a book of theology; it is also a book of practical application. The good news of Jesus Christ is more than facts to be believed; it is also a life to be lived. Learn about the free gift God has given you, and the supernatural power available to you through His Son. Together, these can produce in you a triumphant life, now and for eternity.

Understanding
the New Testament
Taught by Dr Jim Courter
2 Units
Zoom Only

Thursday
5:30pm - 7:00pm

The New Testament contains more truth than any other book in the world! It quotes the Old Testament over 400 times, being the fulfillment of the long-awaited hope first voiced by God when he promised that the “seed of the woman” would crush the head of Satan (Gen 3:15). 

 

References to the Old Testament will be studied in their context. The course will provide an overview of the New Testament’s structure and messages, so the student can better understand the various purposes for Christ’s appearing as a man. He promised his followers the Holy Spirit with “all power in heaven and on earth” at their disposal. We will look at what this means for us in our daily lives. The gospel is the living word that has power to transform us and bring freedom and healing to anyone who accepts it as the Word of God. The Lord’s ultimate purpose is that we would be a dwelling place of God by his Spirit (Eph 2:22), which was only hinted at in the Old Testament tabernacle and temple systems.
