BC7603: Marriage and Family Counselling

Thursdays 7-9 PM

God’s purpose to glorify Himself in the saving of His people is dramatised in Christian marriage. Beginning with Genesis 3:15, and culminating in the Revelation when our bridegroom appears, the Bible is full of instruction and help for our marriages. So in this course we will take a detailed look at the Biblical theory and practice of relationship counselling, with a particular focus on marriages and families.

BT611: The Pentateuch (Genesis)

Thursday 7-9PM

In Judaism, all theological argument flows from the Pentateuch. In Christianity, these books are no less foundational. The course will show how Genesis, and the remaining four books of Moses, provide the essential theological context for our understanding of the person and work of Christ.

PT501: Spiritual Development and Discipleship

Friday 10AM-12PM

It is God's desire that we should live intimately with Him and become like Jesus in conduct and character. We shall explore in this course how this can come about through understanding how we relate to God as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, develop spiritual practices (spiritual disciplines), and commit intentionally to becoming apprentices of Jesus in kingdom living."

Who is the Holy Spirit and what is his work, specifically, how does he apply the redemption accomplished by God in Christ? This class looks at what the Bible has to say about the person and work of the Holy Spirit, as well as how it is that God saves sinners. The biblical information is also read in the light of reason, tradition and experience to exalt Christ as Lord.
