The following classes below are offered as extension courses at Tyndale this Fall (from 28 August 2015 to 18 December 2015)
Mondays, 09:00 – 10:50, Dr. Peter Hays (3 ECTS)
Bibliology is the study of God’s written revelation. This study tracks the entire course of events and processes which produced the Bible in order to understand how it is that man possesses God’s words in written form. Topics range from revelation and inspiration through canon, illumination and authority.
Mondays, 19:15 – 21:45, Dr. Szaszi Bene (3 ECTS)
It is of great value to understand the foundational doctrines of the Christian church. So many questions that impact life decisions can be addressed by understanding the major teachings of the church. This class will provide an overview of major doctrines such as the doctrines of God, Christ, Holy Spirit, salvation, scripture, church, and end times. It will provide room for discussion when groups within the church are not in agreement on some matters.
Fridays, 09:00 – 11:50, Dr. Szaszi Bene (3 ECTS)
This course provides the student with an overview of the content, flow and unity of the Old Testament. Backgrounds, literary types, literary structure, and an overall theology of the Old Testament will be presented. Emphasis will be placed on God’s progressive revelation of himself and his revelation to mankind.
Fridays, 15:30 – 17:20, Dr. Phil Gottschalk (3 ECTS)
This course focuses on ethics in the Old and New Testaments. Discussion will include a brief history of Christian ethical reflection with its various approaches and general principles of both individual and social ethics. It will attempt to help the student to develop skill in thinking and acting ethically in light of biblical principles. The class will reflect on issues such as abortion, capital punishment, euthanasia, genetics, racial/ethnic discrimination and warfare.
Tuesdays, 19:15 – 21:45, Mr. Bob Landon (3 ECTS)
This course describes and models an effective way to study the Bible that is sensitive to the literary structure of the Bible and yet brings the student to the place of personal application. Although theoretical ideas are explored, the main focus will be on actually studying the Bible. A goal of the course is to learn a method that can be used and taught in your church, your Bible study group, or in an evangelistic Bible study. We will deeply study two books of the Bible – one from the Old Testament and one from the New Testament. We will learn how to go deep into the text and how to take others there with us, so the Word will go deep down into us, as individuals, but also as the body of Christ.
Wednesdays, 13:15 – 15:05, Dr. T. J. Marinello (3 ECTS)
Where did the Church come from? How did we get here? Why do we do as we do when we gather on Sundays? This course will examine the hand of God in history as He builds His Church. Specifically, the course will provide the student with an overview of the history of the Church from ancient to medieval times. The students will receive an overview of the interaction of the Church with the culture, the state, and itself as it developed from ancient to medieval times. This overview will focus on both the history of the Church as well as the formation of Christian theology.
Thursdays, 19:15 – 21:45, Dr. Daniel Ahn (3 ECTS)
Because it is the plan of God to make Himself known in the world and bring people into a personal relationship with Him, it is important that Christian leaders understand and be able to articulate this from biblical, historical and strategic dimensions. For this reason, this course offers an examination of the following aspects: (1) definitions of mission and evangelism; (2) goals and purposes of missions; (3) biblical foundations for missions; (4) a brief survey of the history of missions; and (5) strategies for missionary work.
Thursdays, 13:15 – 15:05, Mr. Rien van der Toorn (3 ECTS)
This course examines the following related to culture: Biblical foundations, its nature, worldview, ethnography, humanity in culture, approaches to culture, transculturalism, biblical interpretation in light of culture, gender and culture, globalization, contextualization and church and culture.
Wednesdays, 15:30 – 17:20, Dr. Jim Dahl (3 ECTS)
Because world religions dominate the world’s scene and are found in every niche of society, it is essential that church leaders understand their neighbors who adhere to these various religious systems. Thus, this course will provide a brief introduction to the theology of religion, but will focus on the major religions in the world (Folk Religions, Hinduism, Buddhism, Chinese Folk Religions, Islam, Judaism and the Christian traditions of Roman Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy.)
