Course Offerings for Fall 2023
Two Identical Sessions: Mondays from 4:00-5:30pm and Tuesdays from 1:00-2:30pm
Apologetics is the art of making a well-reasoned defense of one’s faith. And with all the various arguments that are made against the Christian faith, it is good to study how to respond to such arguments. Learning how to respond to arguments against one’s faith is helpful for your own faith. It also is helpful for being able to share your faith with others.
Would you like to learn how to defend the existence of God? How to answer the “problem of evil”? How to argue for the resurrection and other miracles? How to explain how we can know that the Biblical text we have today is the original text and is reliable? This class will provide training in some of the best and strongest arguments that Christians have devised to defend their faith.
History: The New Testament World
Tuesdays from 2:30-4:00pm
Jesus and his apostles lived in a world that in many ways is very different than ours. So knowing about the context of the New Testament events and writings can help us to better understand the things that we read about in the New Testament. This class will cover the historical and cultural background to the New Testament to help shed light on the New Testament text.
Would you like to learn more about Pharisees, Sadducees, and the family of King Herod? About the religious attitudes of the pagan people Paul was preaching to? About what a Bethlehem stable, a Galilean fishing boat, and the Jerusalem temple would have looked like? About what life was like at that time for farmers, tax collectors, women, children, and slaves? Learn this and much more as we study the New Testament world.
St. Peter’s is located at 413 3rd St E. in Monticello, just three blocks east of 25 and one block south of Broadway.
Each course will consist of twelve weekly classes, 90 minutes in length.
Each course will cost $60 per person, or $100 per family (with no limits on family members attending). This fee includes all the materials needed for the class, and is charged primarily to ensure that participating families have “buy-in.” Scholarships are available.
Classes begin September 11/12. The last classes will be December 18/19.
No classes on September 25/26, November 13/14, or November 20/21.
