INSTRUCTOR: Dr. James J. S. Johnson (ICR-SOBA, ACSI-credentialed CEU provider 2153)
This course introduces and illustrates the importance of names, with special attention to: 1) the many names of God provided in Scripture that reveal various aspects of His glorious character and His wonderful works in creation history; and 2) many names of humans whose lives are reported in the Old and New Testaments (e.g., Adam, Eve, Methuselah, Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Israel, Edom, Daniel, Paul, Peter, Jude), providing providential insights into the lives and lessons of many biblical characters whose lives uniquely contributed to God’s purposes for the Genesis Mandate and the Great Commission. Insights and illustrations will mostly come from the Holy Bible, with special attention to biblical Hebrew and biblical Greek name studies. Using apologetics-relevant examples from Scripture and history, Dr. Johnson will analyze biblical names to show how divine and human names glorify God. (As a bonus, the biblical names of a few animals will also be considered.)
Scriptural insights will be observed in biblical texts, especially texts from Genesis (e.g., Genesis 1:1; 2:19-20, 22-23; 3:20), Exodus (e.g., Exodus 3:14), Deuteronomy (e.g., Deuteronomy 6:4), Psalms (e.g., Psalms 2, 23, 110); Daniel, Matthew, Acts, 1 Timothy, and/or Revelation. Additional resources to be used include relevant information in ICR apologetics articles, Young’s Analytical Concordance, and/or Bible maps.
COST: $30.00 (6 hours of instruction, for 1.0 CEU). Please bring payment at time of first class.
