Give Classroom a Test Drive
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 details in the garden and the tabernacle used by New Testament authors to help us grasp the mystery of what happened in the life of Jesus.
Begin a Full Class
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 take a deep dive (pun intended?) into the book of Jonah—one of the most sophisticated one and a half pages in your entire Bible. We’ll explore how this book fits into the larger biblical story, its implications for how we read and understand the Hebrew Bible, and its impactful significance for our lives.
In this class, we’ll take a deep dive into Paul’s letter to the Ephesians. By placing Paul’s letter in its first-century context, we’ll reshape our perception in significant ways.
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 the heavens and the earth and put 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.
From Adam to Noah: Exploring Genesis 2-5
In this class we’ll examine the first family in the Bible. We’ll look at the narratives of Adam and Eve, the snake in the Garden, Cain and Abel, and more to see how these formative stories drive the tension of the biblical narrative.
From Noah to Abraham: Exploring Genesis 6-11
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.
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.
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 Book of Exodus
In this class we’ll study the book of Exodus, which unfolds in two movements: the liberation from slavery in Egypt and the Mount Sinai narrative. This story establishes themes that are foundational to the rest of the biblical story and reveals God’s desire to partner with humanity.
