Theology and Exposition of Johanine Literature (NT/TS 518, 3 credits)
Monday – Friday: 19-30 May 2014, 9.00 am – 5.00 pm
The Apostle John, identified as the disciple whom Jesus loved, had a very close relationship with Jesus. In the Gospel of John and the Epistles of 1, 2, and 3 John, he wrote so that the reader would come to know Jesus, love and believe in Him, and live a life which reflected His presence. These four books will be studied in an expositional manner with special attention given to their doctrinal significance and relevance today.
