      1. The Epistle to the Ephesians– with Hansel Wang
      The Epistle to the Ephesians, the “crown of Pauline writings,” soars the height to contemplate the mystery and the goal of salvation that the Father achieves through the Son. Ephesians has been esteemed as significant as the Psalms, the Gospel of John, and Romans in shaping the life and thought of Christians. Its influence on Christian liturgy (worship) and piety of the Church are profound.
      This course, grounded in biblical interpretation, explores the key themes of the Epistle which include God’s saving purposes from election to his summing up of all things in Christ; the exalted Christ and believers’ relationship to him; God’s victory in Christ over all powers; the grant presentation of the Church and its language of worship and prayer; and the scope and depth of its ethical teaching, etc. Ephesians challenges the superficial understanding of the Gospel prevalent in our day steeped in the postmodern mindset. It insists that the truth of God and his Gospel, while demands our personal participation, stands over against all ideas that deny its objective
      divine reality.
      2. History of Christianity I– with Pastor Christopher
      Christianity is an ancient religion with over two millennia of historical development. For Christians today, knowing our history is nothing short of knowing who we are as the people of God across time. We stand upon the shoulder of theological giants, of pioneers who cleared the way for us in the midst of defining our faith and defending our faith against heresies. From its roots as a small Jewish sect on the eastern borders of the Roman Empire to a global religion that spans every continent, this course explores the period from Christianity’s inception to the Reformation. Have you ever wondered why there are so many diverse denominations which have only proliferated after Reformation and differing expressions of worship, doctrine, practice, and even church architecture? In addition to touching on some of these topics, you’ll get a better grasp of how Christianity ended up with the Bible, and the various conflicts which led to the beliefs we have today such as the Trinity. Explore the formative centuries of Early to Medieval to Reformation.
