Schedule: Starting January 16, Thursdays. 6:30p-8:00p. 1 Credit. 10 sessions.
Course Description: Bible Doctrines IV completes the survey of Bible doctrine. Its focus is upon Ecclesiology, Eschatology and issues in Dispensational Theology.
The whole NT orientation is a future orientation. Yes the Cross is critical, but remember the cross is unoccupied and the tomb is empty! Our King is alive and we await His coming. The prophetic calendar is full of events that will inspire hope and purity in the lives of those who have a firm grasp upon them. THERE IS NO PREREQUSITE to this class nor is the order of our Bible Doctrines Classes inspired. Feel free to jump right in. We’ll be looking forward to seeing you in class.

OT241 – Old Testament Historical Books
Dr. Ken Burkett
The course is a survey of the OT historical books with a four-fold focus: (1) the major themes and theology of each book, (2) key principles for interpreting & applying historical narrative, (3) the historical accuracy of the Biblical narratives, and (4) basic issues of authorship, date of composition, etc. Additionally, each student will be required to complete his choice of one project related to either the practical application of timeless principles in Biblical narratives or a more technical discussion of challenging issues or alleged problems in the historical books (e.g. did Jephthah really offer his daughter as a human sacrifice).
Dr. Ken Burkett grew up in the Midwest. He attended Bob Jones University in South Carolina where he obtained a B.A. in Bible, an M.A. in Bible, and a Ph.D. in Old Testament Interpretation. Currently, he is an adjunct professor with the Baptist College of Ministry and Seminary near Milwaukee, WI and also with the Mississippi Delta Community College in Moorhead, MS. Dr. Burkett was ordained to the gospel ministry in 1985, and he has served as the Pastor of Greenville Bible Church since 1996. As a pastor-teacher, his great passion is to expound the Word of God.
