January 15 – 17: Reading the New Testament as Though Your Life Depended On It

Instructor(s): Dr. Harry O. Maier

The course will explore the New Testament claims on our lives under three headings: the Kingdom of God, the cross and resurrection, and a life that abides in God. In each case we will explore the claim being made upon us as God’s people and how God invites us to fullness of life.
