Course Description (BIB2052): A thorough study of Paul’s four Prison Epistles—Ephesians, Colossians, Philippians & Philemon. Examining each of these letters includes an analysis of the biblical author, date, readers, historical setting, purpose, themes, special features, and outlines. Also, studying each epistle involves the exegesis and analysis of each paragraph, with an emphasis on the two hermeneutical questions: What did the text mean to the first readers? How does it apply to us? Continuing to the top of the hermeneutical ladder, each lesson identifies timeless, cross-cultural principles, for every paragraph of the biblical text. Interactive questions, case studies, and illustrations guide students to evaluate and apply these principles to the situations believers face today. (This course is designed for two credits, based on 16 class hours per credit.)
