July 2018 Postgraduate Unit
Christians seem to love Peter. He makes mistakes like the rest of us! Yet no one doubts the sincerity of his love for Jesus. He actually says what others are thinking, and does what others refrain from doing. This makes him an excellent foil for Jesus in the Gospels; we learn much about Jesus because Peter is the way he is.
In this unit we’ll follow the dramatic highs and lows of Peter’s life. We’ll draw encouragement from the way he is discipled by Jesus, and then mightily used in service of the growing church. Peter’s letters teach us about Christian perseverance, which prepares us to live well in a world that is increasingly hostile (1 Peter) or mocking of faith (2 Peter). Christians who are sidelined, silenced or mocked, are helpfully inspired and directed by Peter’s response.
Note: Greek is by no means necessary for this course, but students who would like to revive or freshen their Greek will be welcome to do so in their assignments.
