New Testament Letters in 1st Century and Middle Eastern Perspective is a 1-week Spring Intensive course with Dr. Arley Loewen being offered April 26 – 30 through Steinbach Bible College.
Date & Times: April 26-30, 2021 (9:00am-4:00pm)
Instructor: Dr. Arley Loewen
Description: The 1st century Christians had no church to join. They came out of cultural practices and religious beliefs that were counter to their new life as Jesus’ followers. What should they believe and how should they live? In this course, we will try to read the New Testament letters from a 1st century perspective. We will also explore cultural and religious themes of the modern Middle East, as they resonate with ancient biblical culture. We will gain a deeper appreciation of the New Testament epistles as we explore the texts in light of the social, religious and political milieu of the 1st century world.
Cost: Available for credit ($837) or for audit ($418.50).
Available live streamed online (on-campus attendance pending restrictions/capacity limits).
