Introductory and Advanced Session Samples

Below you will find two sample sessions from our modules, the first is from an Introductory level module and the second is from an Advanced level module (and it is the most difficult of the advanced level modules so you won't ever be faced with anything more complicated than that).  These will help you to see the sort of things you will be doing in the modules.

Sample Sessions for you to explore

In this session we will look at the book of Matthew, its date and authorship, its structure, themes and what it says about Jesus.

INTRODUCTORY LEVEL: Opening the Bible, Session 2


In this session we will explore the two creation stories contained in Genesis 1-3. These stories fall into the genre of Foundational Myth/Legend and are based on existing ANE myths. We will see as we progress through the preparatory reading how the writers of these stories took familiar myths of the day and transformed them into a powerful new understanding of a non-mythological God who cares deeply for all creation.

ADVANCED LEVEL: Old Testament, Session 2
