Dr. Peter Young is the Senior Pastor of BridgeWay Church in Denver, CO, an adjunct professor at Denver Seminary and the Global Awakening Theological Seminary, and the Bible instructor at the Colorado School of Kingdom Ministry. He has taught through the Bible on a rotating 2-3 year cycle for over 20 years.
He approaches his Bible survey classes from a revelatory, rather than an informational perspective.
Students glean solid insights from their own exegetical study of God’s Word combined, with class lectures, Q&R, and discussion. Key to Peter’s instruction approach is stewarding the presence of God’s Spirit who reveals key insights which are immediately applied to students’ lives. Deep historical and big-picture background is typically shared in each class session. You will find his perspective both life-changing and unique among Bible surveys and Bible teaching courses taught at seminaries or Bible colleges.
The video and audio series of Dr. Young’s classes are used in conjunction with different student notebooks. Students take notes from the Bible on their own as they read and study before viewing or listening to the audio tracks.
The New Testament Sampler contains detailed teaching (4 sessions) on:
- Introduction to Eastern Literature and the revelatory nature of God’s Word
- New Testament and Gospels Introduction
As in all the courses, Peter teaches the supernatural aspects of God’s interaction with man, and the prophetic and revelatory nature of the Scriptures as they apply to Christ and believers today are deeply explored.
Session 1 – Revelatory Nature of God’s Word and Eastern Literature
Session 2 – An Introduction to the New Testament and the Gospels
Session 3 – Mark 1:1-4:34
Session 4 – Mark 4:35-8:30
Session 5 – Mark 8:31-16:20
The accompanying workbooks for this course are:
- How to Study the Bible, and
- New Testament I Gospels and Acts, Student Manual
- New Testament I Gospels and Acts, Teaching and Exegetical Notes
The exegetical notes from the instructor are regularly referred to in his class teachings. Slide presentations, online word studies, and the whiteboard diagrams that Peter regularly uses are only available on the video version of the teaching, which we recommend over the audio teaching for this reason.
