The Mobile Ed Subscription includes a variety of courses on essential topics taught by top scholars. Here are the courses featured in the Mobile Ed Subscription from January 1 through March 31, 2017.
Introducing Bible Translations (BI181)
Mark L. Strauss introduces the philosophies of translation in order to equip students in their selection of a specific version or versions of the Bible. The course compares functional and formal equivalence and describes the strengths and weaknesses of each. It also covers elements of language such as gender terminology, idioms, and metaphors, with specific examples of the effect translator choices have on comprehension and interpretation of Scripture.
The Story of the Bible (BI201)
Michael W. Goheen introduces students to the coherent, unifying storyline of the Bible. The course focuses on specific interconnections between the Old and New Testaments, demonstrating the unity of the Bible’s narrative by tracing theological themes across the Testaments. The narrative begins with the dawning of the kingdom of God on earth and humanity’s rebellion against that rule at the fall. The remainder of the OT tells the story of God’s plan to re-establish his kingship on earth through Israel. Israel’s failure to remain faithful precipitates the NT and its story of the coming of the incarnate King (Jesus), the spreading of his kingdom message, and his return at the end of days.
Introducing Church History I: Obscurity to Christendom (CH101)
Frank A. James III looks at church history, beginning with the first century and continuing through the end of the Middle Ages. It covers the early church, persecutions, and the controversies that arose as church leaders hammered out orthodox theology and Christology. The rise of the papacy and the Crusades are discussed, as well as key theologians like Augustine and Aquinas. The course finishes in the tumultuous fourteenth century with the Great Schism and the beginnings of church reform.
Basic History of Preaching (CM100)
Gary Carr surveys the history of preaching from the early church to the present. The course begins with an introduction to the origins of preaching in classical Greek rhetoric and then highlights notable preachers and their contribution to the nature of preaching in the time of the church fathers, the Middle Ages, the Reformation, and the succeeding centuries up to modern times.
Current Issues in Missions (MI102)
Tim Sisk discusses the changing world situation since the beginning of the modern missions movement in the mid-nineteenth century and introduces new mission opportunities and approaches these changes have created. The course explores the impact and implications of globalization and the shift of the “Christian center” from Europe and European-derivative cultures to the southern hemisphere. The course also introduces the contemporary debates regarding appropriate contextualization and the relationship between evangelism, humanitarian relief, and issues of justice.
Introducing New Testament: Its Structure and Story (NT101)
Lynn H. Cohick provides a survey of the New Testament beginning with the Gospels and ending with the book of Revelation. This course provides a brief overview of the historical situation of the NT and the early church, examines the overall life of Jesus, looks at the different writing techniques of the Gospel authors, and provides an overview of the Synoptic Problem. The course also looks at the important developments in the early church, including Paul’s conversion. The course surveys each of the nt Epistles, looking at the setting, structure, and major themes, and discusses the message and genre of the book of Revelation.
Introductory Issues in Acts (NT216)
Craig Keener provides students with an introduction to the book of Acts that focuses on the key issues of genre and historicity. Keener defends the historicity of its accounts and recorded speeches, noting that this kind of history writing fits well with reputable Graeco-Roman patterns of writing history. He also explores key themes, focusing especially on prayer and Spirit-empowered cross-cultural evangelism.
Introducing the Old Testament: Its Poetry and Prophecy (OT102)
David W. Baker explores a practical foundation for reading the poetry and prophecy of the OT. He begins by describing poetic writing generally and then discusses specific features of Hebrew poetry. Each OT book of poetry, wisdom, and/or prophecy is then overviewed, with specific attention given to the historical context, literary genre, and theological import of each.
Theology of Everyday Life (PC151)
Daniel M. Doriani shows how theology can inform social and personal life. From eating and playing, to friendship and weddings, this course looks at the importance of developing a deeper sense of the relevance of Scripture and Christian ethics to physical and relational life. Reflecting deeply on what the Bible has to say about various everyday topics, it points students toward rich ethical guidance and provides tools to help people find insight from Scripture for all of life.
Do This Not That to Transform Your Marriage (PD151)
Stephen Arteburn considers biblical misinterpretations and common misconceptions about marriage and divorce. The course covers practical measures that a couple can take to improve their marriage, and concludes with direction for strengthening the marital relationship through shared pursuit of a relationship with God.
Introducing Bible Doctrine I: Theology, Divine Revelation, and the Bible (TH101)
In this course, Carl Sanders, Ronn Johnson, and Michael Heiser introduce the study of Christian systematic theology. Major topics, essential ideas, central issues, and doctrinal disagreements pertinent to each area of doctrine are discussed. This course focuses on why theology is important, what “doing theology” means, why it can be challenging, and how to think about the sources of theology: divine revelation, the Bible, tradition, and the contributions of logic and philosophy for thinking clearly about doctrinal issues.
