The mini class format delivers the depth of a seminary class in under an hour. It’s a great way to test out the Classroom learning platform! Our first available mini class, Eden as Heaven and Earth, explores the garden and tabernacle imagery used by the biblical authors to help us better understand the life of Jesus.

Each class is filmed with a small group of students taught by Tim Mackie. Each class is then optimized for the digital space, so you can join the learning experience online! Go at your own pace as you make your way through 29+ video lectures (20-40 minutes in length), interactive questions, and in-depth forum discussions. Here are the currently available classes.
In this class, we’ll look at the story of Noah and his descendants, revealing key truths about God’s character and the covenant promise that forms the foundation of the entire biblical story.
This class explores the exciting and strange world of biblical words, offering skills and concepts to help us better understand the Bible.
This class covers Genesis 2-5, with a close look at the stories of Adam and Eve, the snake in the garden, and Cain and Abel. A deep understanding of these stories prepares us for the depth of the chapters that follow.
In this class, we’ll take a deep dive (pun intended?) into the book of Jonah—one of the most sophisticated one and a half pages in the entire Bible. We’ll explore how this book fits into the larger biblical story.
In this class, we’ll examine Paul’s letter to the Ephesians. By reading Paul’s letter in its first-century context, we can reshape our understanding of the letter and its original message.
This foundational class explores the origins of the Hebrew Bible, or Old Testament, and how to develop the skills necessary for reading it well. It’s the recommended prerequisite for all future classes.
In this class, we’ll focus on Genesis 1-11, Psalms, and the biblical wisdom literature to understand the architecture of Heaven and Earth while putting Jesus’ words about the new creation into context.
We have multiple classes currently being recorded and produced for delivery in our custom-designed digital classroom. Here’s a peek into what’s coming.
This class follows the story of Moses and the descendants of Israel as God rescues them from oppression in Egypt and establishes his covenant with the fledgling nation. We'll see how God demonstrates his character and makes his name known to the nations, and we’ll examine what it means for a people to bear God’s name.
In this class we’ll study Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians, where we’ll find some of the earliest statements about the nature and purpose of the Church, the divine identity of Jesus, and the future hope of the resurrection.
The Story of Abraham: Exploring Genesis 12-25
In this class, we'll explore the literary design and main themes of the story of Abraham, focusing on God’s covenant promises and the plan for a renewed creation.
The Story of Jacob: Exploring Genesis 25-36
This class follows the stories of Isaac and Jacob, tracing the literary design of Genesis 25-36 and showing how God fulfills his covenant promises with imperfect human partners.
The Story of Joseph: Exploring Genesis 37-50
In this class, we study the story of Jacob’s twelve sons. The stories found in Genesis 37-50 bring the narrative of the Genesis scroll to its climax, as the family is nearly destroyed by the jealous rivalry of the brothers.
