  • Theology of the Old Testament


    The approach of this course is quite different from traditional theological studies. Instead, it promotes exploring various themes and patterns that emerge from the Hebrew text and skills that uncover these themes. Each theme is explored through four audio lectures. There is a workbook that accompanies the lectures, which will guide you through exercises that will expand your understanding, and will give you an opportunity to practice various methods and techniques of uncovering the depth of Scripture.

  • Romans 1-8: Literary and Rhetorical Analysis


    This course begins by explaining the first century environment as well as ancient methods of searching the Scriptures. The lectures are in audio format. There is a workbook that accompanies the lectures with exercises to advance comprehension, and an opportunity to practice various methods and techniques of searching the Paul’s epistle for depth of meaning.

  • Hermeneutics: Mining for Meaning


    The approach of this program is quite different from traditional courses in hermeneutics. Rather than a Greek-oriented style that assumes mankind is capable of reaching the truths of Scripture, it promotes a Hebraic perspective of stretching for the truth that resides in God, methods for uncovering a depth of understanding, and constructive dialogue with peers.

  • Synoptic Gospels: Ancient Methods of Searching the Scriptures


    This university course lecture taught by Dr. Anne Davis, professor at Trinity Southwest University, has 16 class sessions. Each class session lasts approximately 45 minutes. The lecture CD is in audio format. There is a workbook that accompanies the lecture. Practice exploring the words of Jesus for the deeper meaning that his listeners would have heard, which often depends on a verse or passage in the Hebrew Scriptures. This lecture will strengthen your ability to see the relationship between the two testaments, starting first with words in the New Testament and then exploring for the deeper meaning in the Hebrew Scriptures.

    "Popular writing and speaking is quite different from academic work," explains Dr. Davis, which requires a logical argument with reliable, relevant, and sufficient evidence to support a thesis (that is, a proposal in the introduction that the paper will then 'prove')." Where does one find this evidence and how does one use it? That is the purpose of this distance seminar, Professional Research Methods, which you will take as independent study. (If you are enrolled in a degree program you will likely have an Academic Adviser).

  • Distinguishing the Gospel of John from the Synoptic Gospels


    There is a rich connection between the Gospel of John and the Hebrew Scriptures, which helps disclose its strong Hebraic foundations. The fourth gospel draws deeply from the ancient Hebrew tradition of wisdom and uses poetic form, not only to evoke emotion but also to convey deeper meaning in its parallel construction. Its narrative is more than a simple story. It is an ancient technique of haggadic midrash, which draws from the Hebrew Scriptures to convey a deeper and richer meaning than the plain and simple words disclose. Its use of irony and word-play are examples of ancient literary devices that convey deeper meaning.

  • Searching the Scriptures: Tools for Bible Study


    The lecture teaches various skills that will help you search the Scriptures for deeper meaning as intended by the original authors and as heard by the original audience. The workbook offers ample practice of these skills.

  • The Book of Hebrews and its Reliance on the Old Testament


    The Book of Hebrews has challenged theologians for centuries. The problem is caused in part by the large number of citations and references to the Hebrew Scriptures, which lead to conclusions that are not well understood. The question we ask is this: "What method was the author of Hebrews using?" In this lecture Dr. Davis shares her research on ancient methods of midrash in which the people at the time of Jesus searched the Scriptures for deeper meaning behind the simple or plain meaning of the words. She will help you develop a "first century mind," and will enrich your understanding of the Old Testament as it relates to the Book of Hebrews.
