Perspectives on Pentecost

Christ the Center engages in a rich discussion with Richard Gaffin about the place of Pentecost in redemptive history. From their website:

Drawing from his book Perspectives on Pentecost and his “Acts and Paul” lecture notes, Dr. Gaffin explained the place of Pentecost as the culmination of that complex of events surrounding the person and work of Jesus Christ which includes his incarnation, death, resurrection, and ascension.  Pentecost, then, occurs as part of the accomplishment of redemption and is therefore unrepeatable although its significance and effects reverberate throughout the Christian life.  This is a rich biblical theological discussion that will repay frequent rehearsals.

Introduction to the New Testament with Craig Blomberg

BiblicalTraining.org has just released a new course by Denver Seminary’s Dr. Craig Blomberg.  Blomberg is considered by many to be one of the best evangelical scholars in the world today.  This Introduction focuses only on the Gospels and the book of Acts.

Blomberg looks at the life of Christ in a harmonistic approach, looking first at the social/economic/political/religious backgrounds of Palestine.  Historical and literal criticism is considered, and then Blomberg examines Christ’s life, from his early years, through his public and private ministry, and finishes with his passion.

The course finishes with a look at the book of Acts, the theology of evangelism and the planting of the early church.

This course is part of the Leadership series of courses.
