This course applies the concepts from LA211 to an exposition of Philippians. Dr. Runge takes you through the Greek text, explaining the exegetical significance of the devices and how he arrived at his conclusions. You’ll learn discourse analysis methods and how to apply them. “I’m going to help you see what grammatical markers and rhetorical devices [and] literary devices that Paul has used to structure the letter, to draw attention to certain points, to organize the letter, and again, to help draw the reader into the letter to really hear Paul’s heart for this church.” Dr. Runge, as always, brings his engaging examples, illustrations, and humor to illustrate his points. By analyzing jokes, mistranslated signs, and other things from everyday life, your learning will become more effective and enjoyable.
