    NTE 2018 STRAND 3 LEADER’S NOTES

    INTRODUCTION TO LEADER’S NOTES

    This strand has two main aims: 1. 1. To help students grasp the significance of Jesus’ resurrection for:

    a. the gospel we proclaim b. our own destiny c. our lives in the here and now

    And as a result, to be filled with the excitement, joy, and gravity of the NT proclamation of Jesus and the

    resurrection

    2. To introduce students to Systematic Theology (Doctrine, Dogmatics) by: a. explicitly modelling a process for developing a Systematic Theology on any doctrinal topic b. giving them an appreciation of some of the complexities and subtleties of doing Systematic Theology c. using the Resurrection as a “model” topic to develop their Systematic theological skills d. developing an evangelistic talk or tract, in order to give them something to take home and use

    THE PROCESS

    Introduction & Part 1: The Resurrection Gospel This section (including getting to know one another) is designed largely to introduce the topic and whet peoples’ appetite for the week. It raises the big question of whether we actually understand the place of the resurrection in the gospel that we preach. The aim at this point in time is not to answer peoples’ questions but to raise the issues and motivate them to learn. We introduce the “the diagram” (which we’ll build up over the conference).

    Part 2: Systematic Theology Having begun with the topic, we then take a step back to do an introduction to Systematic Theology – what it is and how to go about it. The main things to get out of this section are:

    • Everyone does Systematic Theology all the time so it’s not really scary at all

    • Biblical Theology is a control on Systematic Theology

    A brief overview of the main steps (i.e. gathering the biblical data, understanding, synthesising and integrating the biblical data). Getting a grip on the Bricks, House, Suburb analogy.

    NB you could use an alternative analogy if you prefer (e.g. “Writing a book on Australia: working out chapter headings, order, relationships of history to geography” or “Spider’s web: each truth is a strand on an interconnected web, in which some strands relate closely to particular strands, yet changing one will change the shape of everything”). The notes run with the bricks, house, suburb.

    Part 3: Data Collection - on the Resurrection This section involves thinking through how to gather the raw data for Systematic Theology, then doing the hard work of trawling through 140 verses to gather data on resurrection.

    Part 4: Synthesis This is the guts – the long, hard, and exciting part of the process. We look at a few selected passages on resurrection in order to explore the significance of the resurrection of Jesus. We use a diagram to build a picture of our growing understanding.

    Parts 5 & 6: Integration and Application We take several passages that draw on a number of the elements we’ve explored in our Synthesis to help see how they pull together. We look at how Paul’s understanding of resurrection leads him to reject the sexual immorality of the Corinthians in 1 Corinthians 6.

    Part 5: Proclaiming Resurrection This involves creating a talk or tract about resurrection to present to others. This is where they see how clear their understanding is, and we see some masterpieces take shape! Not only that, it provides time for personal reflection and application of what they have leant.

    GETTING STARTED MEETING THE GROUP AND MEETING GOD IN HIS WORD

    1. Welcome, and Introductions. What are your expectations of this conference?

    PRAY together for our strand time.

    Introduction Time: 15 minutes

    The aim of this section is to rapidly build trust so that we create a safe environment where people can ask questions, contribute and disagree well.

    The key to time management in the first session is to get to the end of Part 3.

    The timing is tight, but achievable. You will need to think about having a break, having enough time to do the work of gathering and sifting through the data and time at the end to do the important work off finishing the first day with a stimulus to keep learning.

    THE LOGIC OF THE GOSPEL

    We are used to the logic of Jesus’ death for us. Let’s try and create a diagram of it.

    PART 1: THE RESURRECTION GOSPEL OUR SPEAKING ABOUT JESUS

    In pairs, one of you take the part of a non-Christian who asks, “So what do Christians believe?” The other partner can take the role of a Christian and try to provide them with a short two minute answer. When you’ve finished, swap roles.

    Note down the main ideas or issues you included in your gospel explanation.

    APOSTOLIC SPEAKING ABOUT JESUS

    In small groups, skim read two of the following passages and note: • What part does Jesus’ death (and its’ significance) play in the apostles’ gospel proclamation? • What part does the Jesus’ resurrection (and its’ significance) play in the apostolic gos
