Intensive Units

Ethics and Contemporary Issues (PE211i/301i)

Australian College of Theology Unit Foundational Unit

2019 January Intensive Unit 1

What does it mean to live a life worthy of the gospel? How can we discern what is ‘right’ and ‘good’ – and how should we seek to apply that understanding in our post-Christian world?

The aim of this unit is to apply the Bible to develop a coherent theological framework for how we should think and act, live and love, do and desire as disciples of Christ – by the power of his Spirit and in accord with the will of God. Our approach will be biblical, systematic and practical...

The Doctrine of God and the Work of Christ (TH402i/602i)

Australian College of Theology Unit Pre-requisite: 8cp of foundational NT/OT and 4cp of CH/TH

2019 January Intensive Unit 2

Theology affects all of life. It is intensely practical. It answers the meaning of life questions such as, “Who am I? What is my purpose? How can I live well?” by stepping back to see the centrality of God himself to our lives and the universe. As Augustine said, “You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it rests in you.”...

Old Testament Foundations (OT301i/501i)

Australian College of Theology Unit Foundational Unit

2019 April Intensive Unit 1

As Christians, we want to affirm that the Old Testament is indeed the word of God and that it holds value for the contemporary church. Yet at times we struggle to know what to do with it. While some parts are familiar, there is much here that seems odd or strange. In fact, it can sometimes feel like we are travelers lost in a foreign country – and without a guidebook...

God’s Mission and the Local Church (SMM42i/62i)

Australian College of Theology Unit

2019 April Intensive Unit 2

Our God is a God of mission. The gospel is for people of every nation, tribe and tongue, in Australia and to the ends of the earth. We all affirm it but how should it impact our lives and our churches here? Should we just focus on our own neighbourhood and let others work out the rest? What does it look like to faithfully serve God’s global mission at home? What is our role locally and further afield?...

Exilic Prophecy (OT423i/623i)

Australian College of Theology Unit

2019 July Intensive Unit

Our study of exilic prophecy will focus on the often-neglected book of Ezekiel. While this book offers a number of challenges for modern readers with its bizarre sign acts, oracles of judgment, and fantastic visions – these features communicate a unique and important message that should contribute to our picture of God and his relationship with his world. In particular, the book of Ezekiel portrays the holiness of God and the betrayal of his people in confronting and shocking language...

Old Testament Prophets and Writings (OT302i/502i)

Australian College of Theology Unit Foundational Unit

2019 October Intensive Unit 1

'Get Wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding.’ (Proverbs 4:7). Would you like to grow in your understanding of the Old Testament’s wisdom and prophecy books? Would you like to deepen your knowledge of God, as well as be equipped with tools for doing your own study and teaching of some of the least read books of the Bible?...

Foundational Christian Beliefs (TH305i/505i)

Australian College of Theology Unit Foundational Unit

2019 October Intensive Unit 2

"Everyone is a theologian...they just don't know it!" If that's so, then the real question is whether you're doing good or bad theology. Theology absolutely matters. That's because what lies at the heart of life, love and the universe is the reality of the Triune God and his plan to create, redeem and perfect the world he has made for his glory...
