Study Joshua and Judges with me online!

At Seattle Pacific University we have a Center for Biblical and Theological Education that began, last year, a campus and world-wide four-year plan of studying Scripture together. Each quarter of the year, a faculty member of SPU serves as a guide through a 10-week study of a book (or book set) from Scripture (see here). This is called Lectio and we are beginning the second year. In the fall, we study the Old Testament, and I volunteered to guide the school and worldwide readers through Joshua and Judges. I am no expert when it comes to Ancient Near Eastern studies or Akkadian or Ugaritic or form or source criticism of the OT. But I do love the whole Bible and I have learned immensely from this experience and I bring to these texts a perspective from the NT and a missional mindset and spirit.

To learn more about CBTE, see here.

There will be opportunities, as you get a weekly guide” to the assigned text (like a short theological commentary), to ask questions and engage with me through the CBTE website. Consider starting a Bible study with your neighbors, family, friends, or co-workers. We have gotten great feedback on how this project has been encouraging as Christians seek to make time for study and learning from the Bible in the midst of life.

  1. Thanks, Craig! Feel free to let us know what you think! You can direct theological/spiritual questions to the CBTE folks and someone (probably myself) will try and offer some engagement.
