As someone who has taken three other courses, this course is the final key to the puzzle. Always the stumbling block in the back of your mind when reading material about Jesus as an observant Jew, is the nagging question, “But what about Paul? What about his condemnation of the Law? After all, haven’t we been taught that the difference between Judaism and Christianity is the difference between being under the law versus being under Grace?” In this class, Dwight Pryor presents compelling information that, per usual, what we think we know ain’t so. As in all the classes that I have taken, Dwight again demonstrates that we in the 21st-century just don’t understand first century context. We know that we have gotten Jesus wrong, but we just don’t realize that we got Paul wrong. While not a video of Dwight teaching, the audio, slides, and transcripts are a more than adequate method for learning the material of this class. This class is highly recommended if you want to understand the truth about “the Works of the Law.“Read Less
WHAT TO EXPECT: Once registered, you will receive access to our online classroom for four in-depth messages on Paul, the Law, and the Church. You can watch the audio with slides in your online classroom, and download the audio MP3, and download the transcripts. That's right, all three learning styles are yours so you can master this important content.
COURSE CONTENT: This innovative and important teaching series systematically lays out a framework for understanding the life and letters of Paul. The most difficult questions about Paul's theology and the Law are addressed, and many of the most common and even historical misrepresentations of Paul's views are corrected. Perhaps the most important teaching series Dwight has done since Our Hebrew Lord.
Dwight A. Pryor founded The Center for Judaic-Christian Studies (JC Studies) in 1984 and served as its president until his death in 2011. He was a founding board member of the Israel based Jerusalem School of Synoptic Research. While studying in Israel, he came to realize the critical importance of understanding Christianity's Hebraic origins and the richness of exploring sacred Scripture in context.
Dwight traveled the world as one of the most widely acclaimed and respected teachers on the subject. His academic credentials include a Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy—with special distinction—from the University of Oklahoma. Dwight continued an extensive course of postgraduate studies in Philosophy and Judaism from the University of Texas while serving the Body of Christ as an itinerant teacher. In recognition of a long and distinguished career, he was awarded an honorary Doctor of Theology degree from CSBR.
He published video curriculum and over fifty audio seminars exploring every aspect of biblical theology using the tools of language and culture. His wisdom and insights continue to edify and inspire disciples around the world.
