1 Thesis Statements

2 Will lexical and semantic evaluation of every biblical term relating to “magic,” comparison and contrast to the convergence of prescribed and proscribed behavior during cardinal biblical events, and logical deduction produce a general definition for the concept of magic, or must the term necessarily remain defined by more specific terms?

3 Does a fundamentally Jewish sub-meaning, informed by Isaiah 47 and other relevant texts, underlie the “Harlot” Interlude of Revelation 17-18?

4 The purpose of this thesis is to determine whether the theological construct of ‘union’ or ‘identification’ with Christ and its relation to the work of the Spirit is the context in which one must place Romans 8: If so, this background would form a proper framework for understanding the passage, infusing meaning into its theological concepts. It would also result in important implications in the life of the believer. This study seeks to ascertain the nature of these meanings and implications if the first part of the thesis holds to be true.

5 The purpose of this thesis is to present how the Regula Fidei, or Rule of Faith, was used by Irenaeus to refute Gnostic idea of secret revelation.

6 The purpose of this thesis is to explore the Lucan theme of “bearing fruits worthy of Repentance,” with special regard to the account of Zacchaeus, in order to show that repentance is inseparably attached to restitution in Lucan thought.

7 The purpose of this thesis is to define the religious influence of Jezebel and her daughter, Athaliah, on the Israelite religion, in order to determine the extent of Baal Melqart worship and child sacrifice in Israel.

8 The purpose of this thesis is to investigate all the phenomena and incomprehensiveness of the theophany at Sinai, in order to confirm that the heart of God in this event is God’s seeking intimate relationship with human beings. The purpose of this thesis is to investigate all the phenomena and incomprehensiveness of the theophany at Sinai, in order to confirm that the heart of God in this event is God’s seeking intimate relationship with human beings.

9 The purpose of this thesis is to present Paul’s theology of the cross given to the Corinthian Church by exegeting 1 Corinthians 1:18-2:5 and 2 Corinthians 5:16-21, in order to understand how Paul presents the message of the cross as the paramount solution to the decisive issues in the Corinthian Church and as relevant to the decisive issues in the Church today.

10 This thesis is to give the results of an in-depth exegetical study of Isaiah 52:13-53:12, in order to provide the data necessary to compare and contrast the opinions presented by scholars and ministers concerning the place of divine healing in the atonement of Christ. Dennis E. Pendergast

11 The purpose of this thesis is to look into the ascetic spirituality involved in movements, such as Monasticism, through a historical study of the origins of monastic lifestyles and beliefs within the Christian Church, and compare them to present offshoots, in order to determine whether ascetic spirituality is a necessary ingredient for living a righteous lifestyle.

12 Mike Folmer The purpose of this thesis is to explore the meaning of the “Son of Man” phrase within the Hebrew Scriptures, the Jewish Apocalyptic Literature, and the Gospels, in order to illustrate its importance within the Christian Faith, while exploring the phenomenon of its virtual disappearance after the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

13 Ruth Chang Whiteford The purpose of this thesis is twofold: first, to critically analyze Nehemiah 5:1-13, with regards to its relevance to deuteronomic and levitical lending laws, to determine its original interpretation; and, second, to compare and contrast the Nehemiah passage with Hillel’s enactment of prosbul, in order to determine its hermeneutical relevance for the 21 st century.

14 Marlene Mankins Although the Lord’s Prayer is one of the most well- known prayers in the Christian world, all too often its words are merely recited, while the greater depth of their meaning remains unexplored. This thesis will examine the Lord’s Prayer in light of the context of Old Testament prayer and Jewish liturgical prayer of the Second Temple Period, in order to penetrate and illuminate the purpose and significance of Jesus’ teaching on this prayer, and to apply it to individual and corporate prayer today.

15 The purpose of this thesis is to examine Paul’s usage of the phrase “works of the Law” in Romans 3:21-31, in order to determine the role of Mosaic Law in the life of the believer in Christ. Lawrence Matthew McElroy

16 The purpose of this thesis is to study the term “sanctification” in the Old and New Testament and to study Paul’s thought on sanctification through an exegetical study of Galatians 5:16-26 that will determine the historical development of sanctification, in order to practically apply sanctification in the Contemporary Church. Sanctification is an important concept of Paul and plays an important part in the Christian life. How it is to be understood in the contemporary world is best informed by an exegetical study of Galatians 5: Jordan Renae Olsen

17 The purpose of this thesis is to examine the phrase “fear of the LORD,” in relation to the “knowledge of God,” by examining Proverbs 2 and other key texts, and by making observations from other Northeastern Semitic languages and some New Testament passages for insight into its semantic range. This concept is central in both Judaism and Christianity, for its role in instilling obedience, covenant loyalty, and intimate knowledge of God. Alvin Ray Propst Jr.

18 The purpose of this thesis is to examine the theme of the poor and oppressed in the Gospel of Luke, in order to understand the author’s sources, theological emphases, and message for the Church today with respect to that same group of people. Richard Warren Hannon

19 Based on his Hebraic/Greek background, Paul uses the Greek word hilasterion, in Romans 3:25, to convey to his readers that Christ’s death was both expiation and propitiation. Assif Reid

20 The purpose of this thesis is to examine the development of exorcism in the writings of Justin Martyr and Irenaeus, in order to understand how the Church of the Second Century created the teaching on demonology. Johan Winbo

21 Was the Rapture of the Church taught as an orthodox belief of the Early Church or did it just recently arise out of the teaching of Dispensationalism around 1830.
