For some odd reason the Orthodox Silver packages include a free Mobile Ed course, in spite of the fact that (to the best of my knowledge) there are no Orthodox (or Catholic) courses.

Now I've been told that my L8 code will expire on November 30th, plus I have a new L9 code as well. Please help me choose!

https://verbum.com/product/150390/mobile-ed-th351-perspectives-on-justification-by-faith-five-views-on-its-meaning-and-significance is the only one with a Catholic presenter for any part of it, that I know of. The presenter is Scott Hahn.

(It also has an Orthodox presenter, Edith Humphrey.)

I don't have that course, but if I had a free Mobile Ed course coupon to use right now, that course is what I would use it on.

The courses by Daniel Block in my opinion are among the best ones. I've not noticed any particular Protestant bias. It's pure Bible teaching. Dr. Block is very knowlegable about the socio-cultural aspects of the Olt Testament, and places a clear focus on explaining these conceps, which are independent of denomination.

I should note that, at the bottom of https://verbum.com/99-course, one presently finds a list of "Featured Courses". I believe these are all the ones selected by Fr. Devin Roza as being most likely to be of interest to Verbum customers.

SineNomine:

I knew about that one, but unfortunately I find the subject utterly boring (yes, I'm supposed to be Lutheran... Smile)

I didn't know about that one. Thanks. I'll take a look.

Voted. (Though Orthodox courses seem even more urgent, given that their packages include a code.)

I still read, I just don't have the time and health to write much.

Mobile Ed: NT202 A Survey of Jewish History and Literature from the Second Temple Period (10 hour course)

Excellent. I love it. This is the free course I chose last time, and of course, it's 10 hours so you get more for your money than a shorter course.

You might also like Mobile Ed: BI291 The Apocrypha: Witness between the Testaments. They also come in a bundle together if you want them both but I don't know if your coupon will work for that.

Since you only get one I'd go with NT202.
