"Biblical Imagery and the Teachings of Jesus"   September 14-16, 2016

This course of study with Dr. James Fleming will incorporate historical geography and biblical history, uniquely tying the studies with the biblical text and emphasizing the wedding of the theological/faith relationships.

The Meaning of Life in the Prophets

In this seminar, you will explore the period just before the conquest of Judah and the time of captivity in Babylon, and the period following the return. Topics will include:

  • The Assyrians Came Like a Wolf in the Fold
  • Isaiah and the Good King Hezekiah
  • Jeremiah's Doom and Hope
  • Archaeology and the Last Days of Judah
  • Archaeology and the Return from Captivity
  • Reversal of Fortune, Spirituality of the Return

Biblical Imagery and the Teachings of Jesus

In this seminar, you will explore "biblical imagery." In the Western mind, imagery is a photo image of what something looks like, but for the biblical mind, imagery means "what things do and how things are used." This is known as functional thought. You will take a refreshing look at how the prophets and Jesus understood God working with their ancestors in very practical ways. You will examine biblical imagery from creation, such as the sea, water, rock, and salt, and imagery from the body, like the heart, eyes, stomach, and tears. Topics include:

  • Imagery in Nature
  • Imagery in the Life of the Shepherd
  • Imagery in the Life of the Farmer
  • Imagery from Tabernacle, Temple and Synagogue
  • Imagery in the City
