Administrative Note:

All persons taking WCF as a student enrolled in an institution should make sure to follow instructions and read all forms that are given to you by your institution. These Daily Study Guide pages may not contain all the information you need in order to successfully complete your program. Contact your institution for more information. Also note that Study Guides are school-specific. If you have purchased a hard copy of the study guide then ensure that you have purchased the correct version by reading the front cover of your book.

If you are relying mostly on the hard copy of the study guide and lesson overviews, note that the lesson overviews are in the back of the book.

Plan ahead and begin working on major assignments which will be due at the end of the half-module.

Reflection Questions
  • What is the rationale for the use of the word “formulation” as the WCF name for Module 2?

  • Based on your knowledge of the New Testament and on today’s readings, what was the role that the Old Testament had in buttressing Paul’s missionary task?

  • Why does mission outreach by the church suffer when a) exegesis of the Scripture is devoid of hermeneutics, and b) hermeneutics is divorced from exegesis?
