Overview

Learn more about Jesus and how to read the Bible with precision with the Discovering Christ throughout Scripture bundle. In The Jesus of the Gospels by Dr. Mark Strauss you will see how the Gospels present the historical Jesus. You will investigate the historical reliability of these accounts and explore the ministry of Jesus on earth that culminated in his death and resurrection.

In Typological Hermeneutics: Finding Christ in the Whole Bible by Dr. Peter Leithart you will learn how to read Scripture in a way that points toward Jesus. As Dr. Leithart summarizes this concept in the course, “The point of reading the Scriptures is not to gain information. It’s not to gain insights that we can then use to dazzle other people. We read the Scriptures so that we can be conformed to Jesus Christ, and in being conformed to Jesus Christ, we are also conformed to his mission.”

NT254 The Jesus of the Gospels

  • Instructor: Mark L. Strauss
  • Publication Date: 2016
  • Video Hours: 8

The Jesus of the Gospels (NT254) focuses on the historical Jesus and the reliability of the four gospels. The course surveys different “quests” for the historical Jesus by critical scholarship and examines, apologetically, what we can demonstrate about the person of Jesus. It assesses the teaching of Jesus, his miracles, the intention of his ministry, and the historical evidence for his death and resurrection.

BI111 Typological Hermeneutics: Finding Christ in the Whole Bible

  • Instructor: Peter J. Leithart
  • Publication Date: 2016
  • Video Hours: 4

Explore the art and science of Bible interpretation, teaching you how to become a good reader of the Bible so you will hear everything God says in His inspired Word. Dr. Leithart teaches a hermeneutical approach grounded in a robust theology of language, modelled after the way Jesus and the apostles interpreted the Old Testament, and drawing on elements from patristic and medieval methods. Other crucial topics are discussed, such as the nature of texts, semantics, intertextuality, biblical allusions, and literary structure, all reinforced with a plethora of examples from both biblical and extrabiblical literature. All of this contributes to the main point of reading Scripture: to be conformed to the image of Jesus Christ.
