Distinguished Professor Emeritus at Columbia Biblical Seminary in Columbia, South Carolina
In this course, students complete a chronological and synthetic study of the Gospels’ accounts of Christ’s birth, life, death, resurrection, and ascension. The course focuses on the time, place, circumstances, and people involved in the events of our Lord’s ministry. From the incarnation to the ascension, students will grasp a fuller understanding of Christ’s words and works in light of Old Testament prophecy and cultural context.
Upon completion of this course, the student should be able to:
- Trace the events and statements of Jesus’ life in a logical and chronological sequence, demonstrating their development and purpose.
- Explain the present implications of selected basic truths taught and demonstrated by Jesus Christ during His ministry and death.
- Make attitudinal and/or behavioral changes in his/her life as a result of an increased understanding of the life of Christ.
