1 GHI EARLY CHURCH HISTORY (3 hours) Cincinnati Bible Seminary Spring 2014 (March 11 May 6) Indianapolis campus (Indian Creek Christian Church) Jerran Jackson, D.Min. (812) office (812) cell Revised October 27, 2013 Course Description A study of the history of the early church in the first six centuries, carrying the story down to the pontificate of Gregory the Great. Special attention will be given to how certain problems within the church gave rise to developments that created an institution radically different from that pictured in the New Testament. Course Rationale In the centuries directly after the apostolic age, the early church developed and spread. The church made some great strides and some great errors. As we become acquainted with how the early church grew and faced challenges, we can: (1) Gain inspiration from her leaders, (2) Evaluate her responses to threats, (3) Identify how to avoid some of her errors, and (4) Follow her example in expanding the kingdom of God in our world. Course Objectives In this course, students will: 1. Interact with primary documents from the first six centuries of the early church. 2. Trace and evaluate church leadership developments in the first centuries of the church. 3. Investigate theological questions the early church faced. 4. Evaluate the reliability of the New Testament canon. 5. Explore in depth a topic of each student s own choosing. 6. Meet key leaders in the first six centuries of the early church. Texts 1.
