Porterbrook Southeast is theology for anyone who has a desire to learn and 2-3 hours a week to invest in material that will help shape you as a follower of Jesus.
One of the courses we're offering this fall is called Reading God's Story: An Introduction to Exposition and Biblical Theology. Here's a brief overview of what we'll cover:
This module will help you get a handle on the basics of understanding and teaching from the text of the Bible itself and seeing how the Bible as a whole fits together.The module starts by working through the what and why questions of exposition. It then shows you how to bridge the gap between what the text meant then and what it means now.
The module then asks the question more peculiar to the living word of God – what is the text trying to do? Having laid down these basics the module moves on to looking at Biblical Theology – how the story of the Bible fits together.
