Description

Some people think that mission began with the Great Commission or on the day of Pentecost. But can we read the whole Bible from a missional perspective? What happens when we do? This course explores the biblical roots of Christian mission, seeing especially how the Old Testament vision for the people of God and the future of the nations shaped the New Testament concept and practice of mission. The listener will appreciate the missional relevance of unexpected parts of the Bible and gain fresh perspectives on God's purpose for God's world through God's people. Lectures include:

  • The Bible and Mission: A Fresh Hermeneutical Perspective
  • The Platform of Mission and Caring for Creation
  • Israel as God's People and Agent of Mission
  • The Scope of Mission
  • God, the Future of the Nations, and Paul's Theology of Mission
