Preaching Bible in Contexts

The course encourages and equips contextual interpretation and contextual proclamation of the Bible. "Contexts" are existential, life-oriented and multifaceted, e.g. political, economic, cultural, geographical, religious, personal growth, etc. "Context" could also be determined by liturgical demands such as Sunday sermon, baptism, Eucharist, festival, funeral, wedding ceremony and so forth. Students are expected to bridge the ancient biblical context(s) with the contemporary life context(s).
