Josh Bunce, Bible/Theology Professor at Barclay College, will teach the three-month course on the New Testament, beginning November 6. Last month, Kevin Lee described Old Testament prophesies, foreshadowing Christ and New Testament events. Now Josh, with clear instruction, will give accurate meaning and interpretation of the New Testament events and teachings that underlie our Christian faith. Josh’s hope, and the desire of each of us, is to understand more fully God’s revelation in the Bible, so that through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we might be more effective ministers and church leaders in our world that desperately needs the Gospel. Josh is committed to help us in this noble mission. His first class will focus on the Gospels.
Josh Bunce is Chair of the Bible/Theology Department and Professor of Biblical Studies, Church History, Christian Beliefs, and Youth Ministry at Barclay College. He is a graduate of Barclay College, with Summa Cum Laude honor. He did graduate work at Friends University in the Master of Arts in Christian Ministries and earned the Master of Divinity degree from George Fox Evangelical Seminary. Josh was recorded as a Friends Minister in Northwest Yearly Meeting. He has Friends pastoral experience, having served on the pastoral team at Netarts Friends Church in Northwest Yearly Meeting. Josh is active in the Haviland Friends Church, where he provides volunteer leadership in worship and preaching. He is married to Marcy, and they are the loving parents of three beautiful children: Audrey, Ethan, and Clayton.
