Homiletics and Selected Reading of the Bible
The course encourages dialogue between pastors and biblical scholar(s) concerning theory and praxis. Both parties are engaged to build up a constructive relationship between critical exegesis and ecclesiastical preaching. Sermon topic related to specific area of biblical studies (such as Wisdom Literature, Pauline Letters, the Apocalypse of John, etc.) will be selected. Instead of motivational speaking, students are expected to prepare and deliver sermons in light of scholarly consensus, updated biblical studies and accountable exposition of the Bible.
