In the first semester, the students will familiarize themselves with five key aspects of systematic theology: theology proper, anthropology, Christology, soteriology, and ecclesiology. By preparing their minds in this way, the students will become more effective and productive followers of Jesus Christ. In the second semester, students look at who Jesus really is. A different approach will be taken by looking through the eyes of Judaism, Islam, Mormonism, and the Jehovah’s Witnesses before studying what the Bible and history teach about the real Jesus.
