Solving the God Problem, a Study of John’s Gospel
The gospel family has four children – Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. The first three show the family likeness, but no. 4 is different. John tells the story of Jesus in a different way. At the same time, however, it is John who gives us our deepest insight into just who Jesus is. This study of his gospel will be interactive, and directed towards enriching the life of church congregations. As John himself tells us, the purpose of his book is that we may believe that Jesus is the Son of God, and that through faith in him we may find life.
Families in the Plan of God
The purpose of this course is to help people in ministry understand how to relate the Gospel to people from different cultural backgrounds. This is important for our reading of Scripture as biblical authors themselves came from and wrote to people of various worldviews. Other topics that will be covered: what God thinks about culture, understanding the difference between shame and guilt cultures, communicating cross-culturally, how sin and salvation are understood in different cultures.
As a graduate of the programme you will develop as a thinker and leader for your people and your church, gain skills in Bible teaching and grow in your understanding of the Kiwi culture
