Class Description:   Overview of Christian Scriptures (SCS 105) will explore the gospels, letters, history (Book of Acts), and apocalyptic literature (Book of Revelation).  We will dive deep into the history, culture, authors, and the meaning these scriptures had for the people of 1st century CE.  Whatever else the Christian Scriptures may be, they most definitely are the response of the writer to both the person and the message of Jesus Christ.

Class Description:   Bible Interpretation: Acts to Revelation (SCS 115)  will explore Unity methods of interpreting the scriptures which aim to help the interpreter cultivate self-knowledge.  These methods also help the interpreter make contact with their Higher Spiritual Self, commonly called the “Christ within” and “Christ consciousness.”  Students will use maieutic and metaphysical approaches of interpretation to discover inner spiritual meanings of Christian Scriptures (Acts through Revelation)–the “New Testament.”
