Korean Bible Academy at Knox

dsc_5906 The Korean Bible Academy at Knox College was developed in response to the growing need of Korean people to continue to study the Bible and offer effective leadership in the Korean Churches in Canada.

Purpose of Education

This program helps develop faithful and creative lay leaders for the church. The purpose of the program is also to help people respond as faithful Christians to the social and spiritual needs of the world.

Participants

There is no educational requirement. Any lay leaders, elders kwonsas, deacons and new believers who wish to pursue a fruitful faith life are welcome.

Curriculum

This is a three year six semester program.  Each semester is 8 weeks long. Students are able to take two courses per semester for a total of twelve courses to receive the Certificate in the Korean Bible Academy. One course is offered in Korean Language and one course in English. A translator is provided for courses in English. Listed below are the courses for the fall term.

Pastoral Epistles and Lay Ministry

Course Description: This course will study the letters known as 1 and 2 Timothy and Titus, which were written in the name of the apostle Paul, sometime in the late first or early second century. These letters reflect the efforts of a later generation of Christians to apply the wisdom of Paul to their own unique challenges, in a new place and new time. This course will provide the opportunity for us to explore how this later generation of Christians struggled with Paul’s theological legacy in the face of new problems. These letters also provide us with a model of how to theologically reflect on the meaning of Paul’s wisdom for our own changing life circumstances.

Course Schedule: February 28 to April 18, 2011

Instructor: The Rev. Dr. Dorcas Gordon and The Rev. Dr. Bradley McLean


Apocalyptic Literature

Course Description: This is an introductory course of apocalyptic literature from the Bible. This course includes an examination of apocalyptic movements in Christian history through a theological lens.

Course Schedule: February 28 to April 18, 2011

Instructor: Dr. Jeong Guk (Bryan) Lee
