Dr. David Instone-Brewer is truly masterful in this course. He is humble, and pastoral towards those who grapple with the topics covered. Regarding the issue on indissolubility of marriage, Dr Instone-Brewer carefully thread on this matter, revealing historical background to illuminate the reasons why Jesus and Paul responded as they did respectively. Furthermore, he reveals laws unmentioned which formed the background for proper understanding of divorce and remarriage. The other topics on intermarriage, polygamy, abortion and child abuse, and homosexuality are well-covered. His other ME course NT390 Jesus as Rabbi: The Jewish Context of the Life of Jesus is also very illuminating for those who are interested in Jewish-related topics.
