This eight session study will unwrap the definition of Pastoral preaching which includes the building of a local community of faith in corporate worship by growing healthy disciples to become like Christ through biblical exposition empowered by the Holy Spirit while awaiting the return of Christ to the glory of God.
This study will survey the Bible’s theological structure by moving through Scripture from Genesis to Revelation. This panorama will be viewed through the Christological lens of Revelation chapter five, where Jesus is viewed as the Ruling Lion and Redemptive Lamb of God. Five major sections of Scripture will be examined to see what each contributes to our understanding of God’s kingdom and redemptive programs. The story of the Bible is His story of reestablishing His kingdom authority and saving a people to populate His kingdom. 
This course introduces the student to the principles of sermon preparation by focusing on the biblical unit of thought, often called “the upper room discourse” (John 13-17). The student studies the exegetical and theological framework of these chapters through video lectures and personal assignments. Team taught by Dr. David Lambertson and Dr. David Christensen; the student will watch video lectures on topics like “The Theology of John” and “A Chronology of the Upper Room Discourse.” Other lectures explain aspects of sermon preparation using specific examples from John 13-17. Class assignments help students implement the information presented in the lectures. The course is self-paced, so students have the freedom to learn according to their personal schedules. Students should improve their abilities to preach expository sermons through the study of this rich section of Scripture, which examines the intimacy of our relationships with Jesus.
