Whether you live in Kansas City or some other part of the United States, if you plan to attend the biannual conference of The Gospel Coalition in Indianapolis, IN April 1-3, 2019, you can receive credit by enrolling in a special course taught by our president, Dr. Jason K.

Köstenberger offers Jesus and the Gospels course

Our new research professor of New Testament and Biblical Theology, Dr. Andreas Köstenberger, will offer his first course as an on-campus elective course in Biblical Theology for graduate students on the Jesus and the Gospels. As electives like this are not offered every semester, this is a great opportunity to learn and study with a gifted scholar about our Lord Jesus and how to read and understand the four Gospels. If you have not yet taken New Testament Survey 1, this course can serve as a substitution for that course as well. Knowledge of Greek will be helpful for this class, but is not required as a prerequisite. To learn more about Dr. Köstenberger and his ministry of scholarship and teaching, read here »
