New course! This course serves to introduce Biblearc’s Phrasing module by walking through the text of 1 Peter. Students will learn all of the facets of phrasing and draw theological insights from 1 Peter. Phrasing is an excellent tool for determining a biblical author’s main point and how he supports it. The course is designed for everyone from pastors to interested lay-people. Our study will also include insights from commentaries and the Greek text. (Knowledge of Greek not required.)
Basic enrollment $109 ($99 with early enrollment)
