OT215 Ezra/Nehemiah

Dr. Randy Furushima

Ezra and Nehemiah have been long regarded in the Hebrew Bible as one book, so we will study both together. They tell the story of restoration. In recounting Israel’s return from the Babylonian exile, Ezra focuses on the rebuilding of the temple, while Nehemiah focuses on the rebuilding of the walls of Jerusalem. It is a story of faith, as the exiled Israelites believed in Jeremiah’s prophecy that one day they would return home. In these books, the character of God is revealed through the value of acknowledging the centrality of worship in the life of God’s people. It is a story of challenges, disruption, brokenness, prayer, and perseverance. Our own lives will be enriched and restored as we encounter what the people faced upon their return to Zion.

LD101 Biblical Principles of Leadership

CNS201 Practical Theology: Introduction to Biblical Counseling

James Kwong

This course provides layperson training in how to use the Bible as a primary tool to help others (and yourself!) manage conflict, deal with sin, and bring restoration and reconciliation. II Timothy 3:16-17 tell us that God's Word “is useful for teaching, reproof, correction, and training in righteousness that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.” While this course is not designed to train professional counselors, Galatians 6:1 tells us that every believer has an obligation to counsel.

BST123 Women of the New Testament and Early Church

Dr. Martha Stinton

Meet the many women whom God used to influence and help build the early church. In a world where women lacked equal status with men, you will be inspired by how Christian women represented Christ in their culture, serving as teachers, evangelists, theologians, politicians, artists, and sometimes as martyrs. Their example will encourage you to pursue God’s kingdom vision for your life.
