In this course, we will study the rhetorical devices that Jesus, Paul and the early Apostle’s used to communicate their message in the gospels and epistles.
Beginning with a look at Rabbinical exegetical techniques used in the famous ‘sermon on the mount,’ we paint a picture of how the apostle Paul further interwove his message into the Greek culture using other well-known Greek oratorical and Jewish devices. By understanding the methodology of both Christ and Paul, we have a real template from which to work when attempting to communicate the message of the cross to contemporary culture.
After this study, your approach to communicating the gospel in a post-modern 21st-century culture (which is very similar to the first-century Mediterranean culture) will be transformed and you will be an effective witness to the gospel of Yeshua.
