TheVoice of Faith: The Psalms in Daily Life (webcast Available)
Luther called the book of Psalms a "little Bible" and wrote that it is a book of examples of the Christian life. The Psalms give us words that we can use to give voice to faith. They offer us words of praise, trust, guidance, sorrow, despair, repentance and love. In short, the Psalms are what biblical faith sounds like out loud.
Instructor: Rolf Jacobson, Associate Professor of Old Testament
Your Faith has Made You Well: Healing in the Bible
Four people in the New Testament hear these words from Jesus: "Your faith has made you well." What does the Bible mean by "well?" What is the relation between faith and healing? Why didn't Jesus "refer" those who were ill to a physician? We will consider these and other matters as we examine several biblical texts related to healing.
Instructor: Frederick Gaiser, Professor of Old Testament, Editor of Word & World
