ABILENE CHRISTIAN COLLEGE
the life of Jesus is required as parallel reading. Independent
historical exegesis of various passages is required. The student
begins with the genealogies, the virgin birth, and the ministry of
the forerunner. The early Judean work is followed by the great
body of work in Galilee. The closing labors in Judea and Perea
are followed by detailed study of the last week, including the
trial, crucifixion, and resurrection. While the events are to be
measured in their chronological order, the essential feature of
this course is the close study made of the text itself, so as to
know the teaching of Jesus and the facts of His life.
With the study of the personal ministry of Jesus is given a
month in the study of Acts. The chief advantage will be the
study of the conversions and of the mission work of Paul. Readings
will be required of the best references in the latest books of
archeology throwing light on the places, customs, and religions
of the time. A chain is fixed in which may be fastened in order
the letters to the churches and the other books as well. Parallel
reading of Robertson's Epochs in the Life of Paul is required.
Same as Bible 383. Three hours a week.
As.-Letters and Epistles.
Study begins with James, as perhaps the earliest of the epistles,
and continues with them in the order followed in Robertson's
Chronological New Testament. Each letter is outlined.
Brief introductions as to author, date, purpose, and teaching are
given for all the books. The historical situation is considered
generally and locally as well as from the way persons or doctrines
are involved. Few references are made to commentaries, but
articles in Bible encyclopediae will be referred to occasionally.
Following Paul's letters giving his teaching and work as related
to Acts, there will be similar study in the pastorals and the general
letters. Last comes the Apocalypse, which will be studied
in the light of previous studies. No feature is made of any one
theory of interpretation.
The entire course is intense and advanced Bible study. Only
juniors and seniors may take it without special permission from
the Dean of Bible. Same as Bible 393. Three hours a week.
