Course Description:

This required course is about God's relationship with humanity thematically revealed in Scripture, particularly with regard to the lawsuit motif found in the Gospel of John.   In it, students explore the meaning and intensity of God’s lawsuit as they seek to understand God’s mission in the light of the truth of the gospel.   Loaded, legal terms such as prayer, truth, trial, witness, law, judge are studied and discussed in depth.  The purpose of this course is to teach students how to read Scripture thematically, so they can see for themselves  that Truth has triumphed over threatening, worldly powers and that Jesus, the Messiah, is the Truth.  

Key Questions To Be Explored:

  • What is God's mission?  Is God a missionary?
  • How does God’s mission relate to the gospel?  What is the gospel?
  • How does God’s mission relate to God’s lawsuit?  What is God’s lawsuit about?  Is God the  plaintiff or the defendant or the judge in the case?  Who are the witnesses in God’s lawsuit?
  • How does God's mission relate to your life mission statement and the moral courage you need to stand as a faithful witness in a high-stakes, cosmic lawsuit?
