Professor: Dr. David E. Garland
Synopsis: We will be going through a number of commentaries, books, and articles on Acts. Each student is required to write “commentary notes” with the following sections: Questions of the Text, Text in Context, Structure of the Passage, Interpretive Insights, Theological Insights, Illustrating the Text. The point is not to have a final paper or commentary, but rather have a starting point and notes. We got to choose our own books, and the professor will be providing a range of articles for us.
