Genesis to Revelation



This sold-out January intensive course, offered for the last time by Dr. Craig Koester, follows the sweep of the biblical story from the dawn of creation to the New Jerusalem. The class is open to 10 pastors and lay leaders as continuing education.

Narrative portions of the Bible give the course its basic structure, with major poetic and prophetic texts, New Testament epistles and apocalyptic writings woven in along the way. Students encounter key parts of virtually every biblical book from the beginning of Genesis to the end of Revelation.

The class is designed so that participants experience the Scriptures as words on the page are transformed into sight and sound through readings, music, drama, and photographs. During the course, participants will generate ideas for teaching the biblical story in creative ways.
