This free video lecture is part of our upcoming online course release, Joshua, Judges & Ruth. From Genesis through Judges we have a straight, linear narrative; in Ruth we have a recapitulation, a backward glance into the main story. When we look over our shoulders at the linear path we have followed, we see only a charred, smoking and bloody landscape. Ruth is a diamond lying in the muck and mire of Judges, flashing in the sunlight. "Back in the days when the Judges ruled"... there was Ruth - the greatest love story in the Bible, a story of redemption.   Read More

  In King David, the Real Life of the Man Who Ruled Israel, Jonathan Kirsch observes:     At the heart of the Book of Samuel, where the story of David is first told, we find a work of genius that anticipates the romantic lyricism and tragic grandeur of Shakespeare, the political wile of Machiavelli, and the modern psychological insight of Freud.  And, just as much as Shakespeare or Machiavelli or Freud, the frank depiction of David in the pages of the Bible has defined what it means to be a human being:  King David is “a symbol of the complexity and ambiguity of human experience itself.   No two-dimensional pious character, David “played exquisitely, he fought heroically, he loved titanically,” as historian Abram Leon Sachar notes.  “Withal he was a profoundly simple being, cheerful, despondent, selfish, generous, sinning one moment, repenting the next, the most human character of the Bible.” Like everyone else, from Samuel to Saul to Jonathan—to God himself—when we encounter David we are charmed by him, and we fall under his spell.              As a work of literature, the David story is one of the most complex and subtle narratives in the Bible, and it is among the greatest stories in world literature.  When we approach it, we do well to bring all of our critical reading skills, sharply honed.   And that's what Dr. Creasy does in this course!

The Gospel according to Luke is perhaps the best story in the New Testament, and it is among the best stories in all of Scripture. As a literary work, it stands shoulder-to-shoulder with the greatest works of world literature.    Hermen Rode, Luke and the Madonna (oil on wood, altar-piece), 1483.

The Gospel according to John stands shoulder to shoulder with the greatest works of ancient literature. In its final form, it is a remarkably unified work with a simple narrative strategy and a deceptively simple prose style.  Yet, of all the writings in the New Testament, John is the most subtle and multi-layered, moving us into profoundly intimate moments with Jesus and his disciples. In it we see Jesus through the eyes of an old man remembering precious moments from long ago, moments shaped through decades of reflection. In John, we probe the very depths of who Jesus is.     In 2 John "the Presbyter" (or "the Elder") writes a personal letter to one of the Johannine communities, referred to in literary terms as "the chosen Lady and her children," and in 3 John he writes a personal letter to "Gaius," a member of another Johannine community.  In both he warns of deceptive teachers who are leading the communities astray, causing disagreement and dissension so serious that it endangers the very existence of those communities. The letters are brief, just a handful of verses, but in 1 John our author addresses the issues in depth.  Not technically a letter or an epistle, 1 John is more akin to a theological treatise.  In these lessons Dr. Creasy addresses 2 & 3 John, and then he moves on to 1 John, paving the way for the book of Revelation, the last work of the Johannine canon.   Carl Heinrich Bloch.  The Last Supper (oil on copper), 1876. Museum of National History, Frederiksborg Castle, Hillerød, Denmark.   This course includes 24 video lectures, with a comprehensive 40-page text introduction and syllabus, artworks, maps, PowerPoint slides, Knowledge Check quizzes, and more.  On top of the interactive online material, you will also be able to contact Dr. Creasy and the Logos Team directly with any questions that arise during your studies.  As you make your way through the lectures, Dr. Creasy will contact you with special opportunities to join him for online Virtual Office Hours" using our Webinar platform.  Read More

The combined work, the Gospel according to Luke and the Acts of the Apostles, is perhaps the best story in the New Testament, and it is among the best stories in all of Scripture. As a literary work, it stands shoulder-to-shoulder with the greatest works of world literature. The Acts of the Apostles witnesses the “birth of the church,” and it introduces us to a cast of characters, including St. Paul, who begins as the great persecutor of the church and becomes one of the greatest of saints. It is a thrilling story! Lindisfarne Gospels (Cotton MS Nero D. IV) c. A.D. 700. London: British Library.    This course includes 20 video lectures, with a comprehensive 40-page text introduction and syllabus, artworks, maps, PowerPoint slides, Knowledge Check quizzes, and more.  On top of the interactive online material, you will also be able to contact Dr. Creasy and the Logos Team directly with any questions that arise during your studies.  As you make your way through the lectures, Dr. Creasy will contact you with special opportunities to join him for online "Virtual Office Hours" using our Webinar platform.  Read More
