MONDAY EVENING 7:00 - 9:00 p.m.
(webcast or classroom)
This course will take up salvation by going through the Three Days of the Cross, the Descent into Hell and the Resurrection. Our first focus will be the Bible and the way Paul preaches about these three things, as well as how evangelists tell the story. Then we will look at the way the church has taught these Three Days in its doctrine of crucifixion, death and resurrection, including Luther's famous theology of the cross and communication of attributes. Along with that, we’ll consider how these work in the liturgy. Finally, we will consider how to listen to preaching of Christ's death and resurrection. Webcast available.
