Biblical Interpretation Course Description
All of Scripture is sufficient for counseling, but how do you connect God’s word effectively to the lives and struggles of people around you? Do you always turn to the same familiar passages, and are less confident in using others to communicate the power of God’s love and faithfulness in the Gospel? How do you use the Bible’s redemptive story in counseling so that counselees grow in their knowledge of and love for the sovereign Lord? This course will help you understand both people and the Bible more thoroughly and is designed to strengthen your ability to rivet scriptural truth to real-life ministry situations. Through lectures, class discussion, and interpretive assignments, you’ll develop your skills in interpreting and applying any passage of Scripture to help people to grow in love for God and others more fully in the midst of their complex, daily lives.
Students will watch lectures, read materials, and write papers at home, and then meet together every other Thursday face-to-face as a cohort to discuss lecture content, readings, and other questions about how to do biblical counseling more effectively. Come take advantage of this unique opportunity!
This course is taught at a graduate level, though you do not need any prior degrees to participate. Courses can be taken for credit, or they can be audited. Auditing is less expensive, but taking the courses for credit allows the Recitation Instructor to provide feedback on all assignments, which facilitates growth and understanding for each of the students. The tuition is $500 if taken for credit, and $375 if audited.
