- ADB 210 Origin and Development of the Bible - This course will present an overview of the chain of communication from God to man: inspiration, canonization, transmission, and translations. Particular focus will be given to the final link of that chain, as we consider the modern English translations that have resulted (3 credits).
- ADB 221 Genesis Seminar - This course examines the major themes of the first book of the Bible, with special emphasis on their implications for foundational Christian doctrines, the nature and purpose of man, and the mission of the church. The foundational Christian doctrines include such topics as God and the Holy Spirit, creation and revelation, sin and salvation, and covenant and Christ. The Genesis introduction of mankind helps resolve such contemporary issues as creation vs. evolution, heterosexual marriage vs. homosexuality, community vs. individualism, and righteousness vs. pluralism. Early glimpses of Christ and the church are caught in Godís prophecies to the serpent and to Abraham and in the history of Joseph. Genesis will be seen not just as a book of faith or a perspective on ancient history, but also as an introduction to the rest of the Bible and as the living backdrop to the coming Messiah, his church, and the standard for Christian living today (3 credits).
