Church History 1
Church History 1 (Apostles to Pre-Reformation) (TH1)
Christianity is a historical religion. It is founded on God’s revelation of Himself in time – especially through the incarnation of His Son, Jesus, some 2000 years ago. One of the great failings of Christians today is that we do not have a better sense of how God has worked in history through the Church that Jesus created and the Holy Spirit empowered. This class will examine the people, places and historical events that are the history of the Church from the time immediately after the resurrection of Jesus, up to the year AD 1500 – the time just prior to the Protestant Reformation.
