Overview and Objectives
In one deliberate choice, paradise is lost. In this third lesson, Dr. Young takes a sober look at the tragedy of Genesis 3 and asks the critical question: What is God going to do? Professor of New Testament, Dr. Erin Heim, will explore the concepts of sin and rescue in the letters of Paul the Apostle. Also included is a pastoral application from Denver Seminary alumna and board member, Elisa Morgan in her article, “Silencing the Hiss.”
