About this course

Thinking well about Scripture also means being able to answer the hard questions posed in the culture and church today. In this course, Dr. Bass focuses on New Testament controversies that in today’s conversation provoke criticism of the Bible as a reliable source of spiritual, theological, and historical truth. The goal is to expose how scholarly discussions, as well as amateur discussions (those in the media or online environments), misrepresent these biblical controversial topics.

What you'll learn

After completing this course, you'll be able to:

  • Identify New Testament controversies that provide contemporary skepticism about the Bible’s veracity.

  • Discern the basis of skeptical criticism about controversial biblical topics and how to engage the issues honestly.

  • Deconstruct skeptical conclusions about controversial topics and probe for points of incoherence.

  • Apply rules for sound thinking to critique skeptical conclusions and formulate coherent alternatives.

The title is accurate and concise in describing information being taught.

Carl Summers

There was a lot of information to learn about in the first MOD that motivated me to study harder before taking the quiz. The payoff for me is my faith is supported not only by the Bible, but also by historical evidence pertaining to Jesus.
