Winter 2021 Course Opportunities


Dr. W. Robert Godfrey, President & Professor Emeritus
January 12-15 | Tuesday-Friday 10:30-12:00pm & 1:00-2:30pm
1 credit hour | Online Only

Course Description:  This course will examine Calvin’s teaching on baptism as a key to Christian identity and life. The doctrine of baptism is a focal point for the Reformed understanding of covenant and election in Calvin and in later Reformed teaching. We will compare Calvin with some of those later Reformed teachers. This study should lead to a clearer understanding of Christian identity and the ministry of the church in our time.


Dr. Dennis E. Johnson, Professor Emeritus
January 19-22  | Tuesday-Friday 9:00am-12:00pm
1 credit hour | Online Only

Course Description: This course will survey: (a) the origins of Reformed Biblical Theology in the history of biblical interpretation, specifically Patristic hermeneutics, Reformation and post-Reformation covenant theology, and the Enlightenment’s focus on Scripture’s human authorship and historical diversity, as these influences converge in the thought of Geerhardus Vos and his successors; (b) the theological presuppositions of Reformed Biblical Theology and their implications for biblical interpretation; (c) the outworking of Reformed Biblical Theology in the interpretation and proclamation of various genres of biblical literature.


Dr. Justin Holcomb, Visiting Professor
January 26-29 | Tuesday-Friday 9:00am-12:00pm
1 credit hour | Online Only

Course Description:  This course explores how to prevent, recognize, and respond to sexual and domestic abuse. Specifically, it will focus on how to minister to those who are survivors of abuse, how to respond to perpetrators of abuse, how to respond in a crisis, and how to build a healthy church culture before there is a particular crisis. This course will be a study of various forms of violence and abuse and the theological and practical implications of the Gospel for these topics. We will investigate sexual assault and domestic violence to better understand each issue as well as the prevalence of the issue and effects on survivors. We will explore how the Gospel offers help, hope, and healing to survivors. This course will focus on theological engagement and practical engagement.
