 Six-Week Session

April 24  through  May 29

With Professor, Rev. Michael Eschelbach

Have you ever finished reading a Bible passage, only to be left scratching your head and wondering why no study notes, devotionals, or commentaries answer your questions? The Big Book of New Testament Questions and Answers is an easy to follow Q & A handbook with vast insight into the entire New Testament.  

We will explore questions like... 

  • Why do the Gospel accounts differ?
  • Why is Jesus' genealogy listed? 
  • How could the relatives of Jesus not believe that He is the Son of God? 
  • Are there demon-possessed people today? 
  • Why did Jesus use parables?
  • What can we learn from the Epistles?
  • How do Christians deal with the issue of women's rights? 
  • What does Revelation mean? 

The book..

Rev. Dr. Michael Eschelbach is currently professor of New Testament at Concordia University Irvine. Fifteen years of providing pastoral care in the parish and fourteen years of university teaching has given him a deep understanding of what questions people want answers to. He is well aware of how troubled people are by mistaken answers and how confused the are by inarticulate writing that misses the point. After collecting student questions from over 40 New Testament classes, Dr. Eschelbach responds to these questions, with a concise handbook of answers grounded in solid, biblical theology.
