The Gospel in the Old Testament
Dr. Rick Bartosik
BST119, In-person ONLY
CBS/CMM: Bible Overview/Theology
The Bible is one book telling one story: the story of sinful man, a holy God, and His plan of salvation through the substitutionary death of His Son on the Cross. The Cross is the center of all human history. It is impossible to teach the New Testament clearly and correctly to believers without adequate Old Testament foundations. In this class we will be studying God’s plan of salvation in Christ, as it has been revealed in the prophecy and typology of the Old Testament. We will briefly consider the Messianic Prophecies of the Old Testament but spend most of our time on the Old Testament Types of the Person and Work of Christ. Includes: A Student Workbook in PDF format for print. Weekly PDF copies of each of the eight PowerPoint Presentations will also be provided for print. Recommended Book (required for CBS students): Loving the Old Testament, by Alec Motyer.

God Speaks Chinese - How Bible Was Translated into Chinese
Dr. Shan Chen
MIS201, Hybrid: In-person and
CBS/CMM: Flex Hours
“God must love the Chinese people very much, ’cause he has made so many of them.” So a saying goes. The history of how the Bible was rendered into the Chinese language is a story of God’s desire to speak to Chinese people and reveal Himself to them. Since it was made available in Chinese, the word of God has been an anchor for the Chinese Church worldwide, illuminating, guiding, correcting and training generations of Chinese Christians in the truth of God. This three-hour seminar gives a bird’s-eye view of the history of the Protestant Chinese Bible translation. From an initial skepticism, the first actual production on Chinese soil in 1823, to the Chinese Union Version produced in 1919, through the tireless efforts of missionaries and their Chinese collaborators, God’s active participation and intervention in the translation process are palpable every step of the way.
Come and find out how God’s love letter to the Chinese people was written in their own tongue. Whether you are a veteran Christian or a new believer, or just a seeker interested in this particular aspect of modern Chinese history, this seminar, conducted in Mandarin Chinese, is for you.
