Fall Online 2022
Date(s): 09/12/2022 to 11/07/2022
Greetings in the name of Jesus who fulfilled everything written about him in the Law of Moses, the Prophets, and the Psalms (see Luke 24:44).
The purpose of this information is to help you (pastors) decide if the Fall Online Elisha course might be for you. I will briefly share the details and goals of the course.
• The course runs for 8 weeks, beginning the week of September 12. It is a 1-credit Old Testament course.
• The course is mostly asynchronous, but there will be a few times when we meet on Zoom to read and translate together.
• During those eight weeks (not including the final project) students might anticipate about 30 minutes of work per day. The asynchronous nature of the class will allow some flexibility.
• Over the course of 8 weeks each student will translate about 125 Hebrew verses:
o 1 Kings 19:19-21
o 2 Kings 2:1-18
o 2 Kings 2:19-25
o 2 Kings 4:1-7
o 2 Kings 4:8-37
o 2 Kings 4:38-41
o 2 Kings 4:42-44
o 2 Kings 5:1-27
o 2 Kings 6:8-17
o 2 Kings 7:3-11
o 2 Kings 13:14-20
• The following resources, among others, will also be read and discussed in the course:
o 1 & 2 Kings: An Exegetical and Theological Exposition of Holy Scripture (volume 8 of the New American Commentary) by Paul R. House.
o 2 Kings: The Power and the Fury by Dale Ralph Davis.
o Faith in the Face of Apostasy: The Gospel According to Elijah and Elisha by Raymond Dillard.
o Behind the Scenes of the Old Testament by Jonathan S. Greer (Editor), John W. Hilber (Editor), John H. Walton (Editor).
• For the final project students may choose from the following: 1. Preparation of an exegetical video on an Elisha text; 2. Design of an Elisha sermon series; 3. A series of Elisha devotions; 4. An Elisha Bible class series; 4. Another pre-approved project.
The goals of this course would include the following:
o Strengthen our ability to read and understand Hebrew.
o Clearly identify how these narratives promote Christ.
o Increase our understanding of the ancient Near East context in which these events occurred.
o Be equipped to preach and teach these narratives in our 21st-century context.
o Be encouraged to serve as the Chariots and Horsemen of God’s people in these last days.
I would be happy to answer any questions you may have (Bradley.Wordell@wisluthsem.org).
Registration has closed.
