Course Number: NT506
Research Professor of New Testament Studies at Dallas Theological Seminary in Dallas, Texas
At the heart of Luke’s gospel are questions about God’s plan, His Messiah, and the emerging new community of Gentile Christians. Bock highlights these and other significant theological themes found in the gospel of Luke. Learners complete a textual examination of the gospel of Luke and its message by working through the book of Luke a chapter at a time. Bock shows how Jesus’ life, teaching, death, and resurrection actually reflect divine events “fulfilled among us” (Luke 1:1). The course enables students to prepare this narrative material for teaching in ministry contexts.
Upon completion of this course, the student should be able to:
- Trace the argument of the Gospel through its narrative units. Interpret any specific narrative material found in Luke and isolate the key theological themes it teaches.
- Communicate the message of a passage that is accurate to the text and relevant to a contemporary audience.
- Identify ways of applying the lessons of the Gospel of Luke to his/her life and ministry.
