If you have seen my recent blogs, they are missing a key component of the UNIVERSITY.. Academics! I just wanted to take a smidge of of what I am learning and give you a glance in. This is what Dr. Dean Flemming likes to call an Inductive Study.
This is for The Book of Acts class I am currently taking. We are going through the whole book and looking at prescriptive and descriptive texts from scripture. We take this passage and evaluate narrative construction, repetition, key words, really simple things that, when put together, make something beautiful and so applicable.
The piece above is from Acts 5. It may seem like a bunch of writing and random arrows, but it is really a culmination of personal and group analysis. In the analysis, we talked about God’s character, Jewish Law, and the actions of the Holy Spirit then and now.
I want to show you this not to only showcase how cool Flem-Dog is; but to show you what this university is about.
What you learn in the classroom shouldn’t stay just there. It should enable you to change your daily life and impact the lives around you. Real world understanding is grasped in every class; whether when we leave or in our future career. I am blessed to learn about the Bible with my peers and mentors and get to find out ho God is daily.
Talk about challenging…
