The Old Testament for Christians; Intertestamental History; Book of Daniel; Book of Job; by Pastor with Master of Divinity degree, writer & teacher

Methodology

I do lecture but it is full of Bible stories and ancient history highlights paralleling the biblical history. Happy to answer questions; the only dumb questions are the ones you don't ask. Although I have a specific perspective on theology, I do try to address other opinions and ideas which are potentially correct also. I do like to ask questions of students to review prior lessons to help the ideas stick in your minds better.

Background

I am a pastor and teacher and writer, Master of Divinity 1992, Master of Library Science 1995, five published books with lots of history. Taught classes on Old Testament history at two colleges. I enjoy showing Christians the importance of the Old Testament which helps greatly in understanding Jesus and the New Testament.

Details

The Old Testament for Christians class is designed to be about twelve hours (six sessions of about two hours each). If you take the whole class it will be just 80 bucks, you get about four hours free. I can stay late for questions at no extra charge (within reason!) :)

The Intertestamental History class (often called "the silent years" between the Old and New Testament), is about twenty hours long. Flat rate of $150. Goes from the Jewish return from Babylonian Exile, to the time of Jesus. Includes Pharisees, Sadducees, Zealots, Dead Sea Scrolls, Septuaguint, Maccabean Wars, Persia, Alexander the Great, Rise of Rome, Carthage, etc.

The Book of Daniel is about a twelve hour class flat rate $80 for all. Lots of history of Nebuchadnezzar, the Jewish captivity, some on Ezekiel (in Babylon with Daniel), rise of synagogues, and of course prophecy. Note that I do not believe that the prophecies in Daniel are mostly waiting for the future, but that most are already fulfilled in the time of Christ and before.

The Book of Job series is almost ready; I could make it a ten or a twenty hour class, it depends how deeply you want to go.

I know John as a Bible teacher and preacher and his knowledge of animals are exceptional. I highly recommend him as a tutor and teacher.

John has the qualities of a good teacher
1)Research and preparation- he is thoroughly prepared by presenting a broad view of his topic. He is likely to touch on points that others would over look. His love of learning is inspiring.2)Presentation- his approach is interesting and engaging. His skill as a writer comes across in his ability to tell a story and capture interest.
I would be very interested in taking a course from John.

I know John personally and professionally. I am the Salvation Army Chairperson in our town and John has preached alongside my husband who is a Chaplain and my Major who is a Pastor for our town's revival. John has proven in my experiences listening to him both preach Christ, as well as to advocate and educate regarding animal health and behaviors to be very skillful in his presentations. Often, he will employ his understanding of both Christianity and animals masterfully combined... totally engaging his congregation in his very comprehensive sermon.
