A key crossroad city in southern Ethiopia, Shashamane has several churches but very few preach the true Gospel. A fledgling Bible College has two classrooms and a sparse library. The school’s new president is now seeking faculty members. TLI’s non-formal program will borrow this school’s facilities to provide crucial training in Biblical interpretation and exposition, which local leaders lack. In so doing, we help stem the tide of the “prosperity gospel” heresy that predominates here.
Course 7: Prophecy (Isaiah)
Course 7 equips the trainees to understand prophetic literature accurately and to communicate it clearly and relevantly. Isaiah has been chosen as a representative of this genre. It teaches trainees to interpret each prophetic passage within its historic setting and the Prophets, the Prophets within the Old Testament, and all of this within our Christ-centered understanding of the Bible.
