GROUP DISCUSSION BOARD INSTRUCTIONS
You will participate in 4 Group Discussion Board Forums with a few of your classmates. In the first module/week in which a forum is assigned, you must directly and sufficiently answer the forum prompt in a new thread containing at least 300 words. You must reference John, the Morris and Towns textbooks, and at least 2 outside sources in support of your argument.
Then, in the next module/week, you will substantially reply to 2 or more group mates’ threads. Each reply must contain at least 150 words, expand on the group mate’s thread, and add valuable input to the discussion relating to the forum prompt. Make sure all posts follow the rules of netiquette and are free of grammar and spelling errors.
This course utilizes the Post-First feature in all Discussion Board Forums. This means you will only be able to read and interact with your classmates’ threads after you have submitted your thread in response to the provided prompt. For additional information on Post-First, click here for a tutorial.
This week, the events and concepts in John 1 and 2 will be the major topics of discussion
Reading from Textbooks:
Gospel to the world
BIBL 160 GROUP DISCUSSION BOARD FORUM 1 THREAD
It is often said that John is the Gospel to the world (and Matthew to the Jews, Mark to the Romans, and Luke to the Greeks). But in 1924, Israel Abrahams said, "To us Jews, the Fourth Gospel is the most Jewish of the four!" How is this so? What is in the Gospel of John that would cause a Jewish scholar to say this? If it is true, why do many people tell new converts to begin by reading John?
