April 25, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
New Testament Gospels: Gospels of John in 1st Century and Middle Eastern Perspectives is a one-week intensive course with Arley Loewen being offered from April 25 to April 29, 2022, through Steinbach Bible College.
Available on-campus and live-streamed online.
Date & Times: April 25-29 from 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM
Instructor: Arley Loewen
Description: Jesus lived in a communal world, very different from our 21st century societies, where individual expression is a supreme goal. With an understanding of the social and religious milieu of 1st century Judaism as well as traditional Middle Eastern culture – much of which resonates with the ancient Jewish world – students will gain a deeper understanding of Jesus’ identity, and His life and teaching. We will seek to walk alongside the early ‘community of John’, and enter their context, as they grow in their understanding of Jesus’ unique identity as the Sent One from the Father and who gives life to all who believe. This course will help bridge the ancient and modern environments so we can more faithfully follow Jesus in the 21st century and join the community of ‘sent ones’ into the world.
Cost: Available for credit ($279) or for audit ($139.50)
