A Prophetic Christmas

Advent 2019

A four-week exploration of the prophetic announcements surrounding Messiah’s birth in Luke 1–2.

This live** course will guide you through a study of the structure, thought flow, main point(s) and takeaways of four prophetic announcements relating to the birth of Christ. Our aim: to grow our hope and joy in Jesus.

We will study one passage each week, highlighting a variety of Biblearc tools including Phrasing, Arcing, Bracketing, and Paraphrase. Old Testament connections within each passage will also be explored in depth. The course will provide study guides for each passage, keys and tips related to the various tools, feedback on assignments, optional group times to work through assignments together**, and interactive discussions via Facebook Live.

**The “live” aspects of this course have completed. However, you may still enroll and receive feedback on your work.

Course Aim

To meditate on the meaning and significance of Messiah’s advent as presented in Luke’s Gospel, for the purpose of increased hope and joy through this advent season.

Course Format

Lesson content will be released each Sunday (beginning Dec 1). Students may explore this content and the focus passage at their convenience throughout the week. Student groups (optional) will meet during the week to work through the passage together.* Assignments will be due by the following Friday in preparation for the Facebook Live discussion** on Saturday (final discussion on Dec 28).

Assignments and Feedback

As some students will be new to particular Biblearc tools and others may be seasoned veterans, each week’s assignment will include options based on experience. The course instructors will provide feedback for each assignment submitted by students. (This course does not include a final assessment.)
