MIN 323 - Evangelism and Discipleship in the New Testament
(3)This course examines how the early church analyzed and adapted the gospel message to the Greco-Roman world and its many subcultures, and how it nurtured its young converts to a mature faith. Examples include Jesus' use of agrarian imagery, Paul's adaptation of the gospel for urban settings, and Matthew's reworking of Mark to create a discipleship manual. With these creative and effective models, the course will identify and evaluate current models of evangelism and discipleship, as well as analyze current American culture(s) to identify ways to be more effective in reclaiming the world for the Kingdom.
Offered Fall 2018 and alternate Fall semesters.
